FC3 doesn't recognize USB keyboard


I installed FC3 some days ago and there haven't been any errors during the installation. However, I cannot use the USB keyboard when the login screen (gnome) is displayed. Even the Num key has no effect on the keyboard.

I'm using the identical hardware configuration as with FC2 and with FC2 all components did work.

When grub is started, I can select the OS entries with the keyboard but as soon as I select Fedora to run, the USB keyboard "dies".

Does aynone have similar problems?

Greetings, weeman

First of all:
Is this line in /etc/modprobe.conf -> alias usb-controller uhci-hcd

The problem is: how can I check this if I don't have any chance to type in anything? I can't even log in to the system. Maybe I can try from another computer via Telnet/SSH. I'll let you know

I am also having a similar issue. Fedora Core 4 on VIA M10K.
I have recently received a Scorpius-P20 wireless keyboard/mouse.
Durring BIOS and at Grub the keyboard works great, it will stop working everytime durring boot when Initializing hardware.
I have searched for 2 days and found alot of questions but no answers to this problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
