Knoppix and USB keyboards

I’m using Knoppix 3.8.2 to set up my Dell Precision 380 desktop at work.

Out of the box it comes with a USB keyboard and mouse. Knoppix does not know how to get the keyboard working, it works when you are selecting what kernel options you want to start with, but that’s it.

After a bit of searching, it seems the solution is to use a PS/2 keyboard. Quite appalling really.
