hmmm - i would think that the USB is turned on in the bios since it works in windows but you might want to check anyway - what motherboard do you have? or do you know what bios you have is the question im trying to ask.

I think your best bet is to use a ps/2 keyboard, go into bios and set the options to enable USB keyboard (if you motherboard supports it).

USB does not work on any thing lower that Windows 98 at the best of times now days.
Before you computer gets into Windows, it effectively running on MS Dos. As USB does not run in MS Dos.

Get yourself a USB to PS/2 adpator, and use the PS/2 ports.

If your bios has a "USB/Legacy" option available in your bios...setting this to enable most of the time will allow use of the USB keyboard in a DOS enviorment. Some Keyboard manufactures even make USB Dos drivers.
Point taken.

Thank you for the tip.
Problem I have experenced is that my USB mouse does not want to function on Win 2k or Xp until I have the USB 2 drivers installed.
Can you help me on that at it's a minor annoyance.
