Problems with Distro because No PS2

Is the no way to work around a computer that does not have PS2 mouse connection?

Is a USB mouse not working? The last distro I installed did not require a mouse. What are you using the mouse for?

my apologies, i meant keyboard. when i get to the network choices screen in the installation process. my keyboard no longer responds. It works in the bios screens, and in the initial package selection screens but after that no go

It must be computer related because when i used the 32 bit installer for 6.12 it seemed to work. So even though the computer said 64 bit and the OS that was previously on the box said 64 bit… hmmm
Oh well at least i have something working for now
