Hello all.  I'm using FAI to deploy Ubuntu and have gotten some new  
Dell core 2 duo machines to deploy.  I've never been able to use USB  
keyboards during an FAI installation.  I've never cared because I  
could easily plug in a PS/2 keyboard.  However the new Dell's do not  
have PS/2 ports on them and I suddenly am in need of figuring out why  
USB keyboards don't work.  I'm running fai-server version 2.10.5 with for running install kernel.  My  
pxelinux.cfg/default file looks like:

default fai-generated

label fai-generated
kernel vmlinuz-
append ip=:::::: nfsroot=(boot_server_ip):/usr/lib/fai/nfsroot-ubuntu  
FAI_ACTION=install root=/dev/nfs   

Any ideas?
