The only options I found in the BIOS setup were to enable
or disable legacy USB support.
I build another kernel to boot my existing linux (which is
Mandrake, and it was only possible to install because the
mouse worked). The kernel complains about a non-existing
or not AT-compliant keyboard. Later while booting
the input core and usb support work, but that is too late
to change the floppies. You have to du it earlier in boot process.
Perhaps there is a parameter for the kernel to look for
usb devices earlier?
