I feel better that I am not the only one with this problem.

Hmmm... You are using 2.6.12 kernel.  I am using 2.4.  Let me upgrade
and see what happens...

OK. I upgraded from 2.4.x to 2.6.12 and now my keyboard is dorked both
inside of and outside of X.org....

>>This gives basic functionality
I cannot get anything usable in X (using X.org) with either kernel.
Could you post your xorg.conf file?
