Hi, I recently had trouble with a USB install detecting a USB keyboard when I booted up. Here are the instructions for getting it to work!

Booting off the CD should provide support for your USB keyboard the first time (other times, you may have to delete the pup001 file). Once you do that, run the Puppy USB wizard. On the mounted USB drive, there should be some boot files, in particular image.gz. Go into this folder and type:

gunzip image.gz

Then, type:

mount -o loop /pathto/image /pathto/some_directory

You need to make a new directory somewhere of your choice. Once this is done, go into this directory. Do a search to find rc.sysinit. Find the one that's in your "some_directory" file. Open it up with Beaver and type in the following lines after "echo, mounting devpts"

modprobe usbkbd
modprobe keybdev

Now type
umount /pathto/some_directory

and go back to the folder where your original image.gz was and type

gzip -9 image

Now when you boot, the keyboard should be detected.
