Check your config.sys and autoexec.bat files to see if there are any keyboard drivers that are loading at start up.  You shouldn't need any as most systems automatically use the keyboard without any special commands or drivers loaded since it is a hardware component.  

It does sound like your keyboard had software that was loaded under Windows 95 that is not being recognized by DOS.  If you do see refrence to keyboard drivers (ie keyboard.sys, keyboard.drv), make a backup copy of the file and then remove the line mentioning the driver.  Reboot the computer and try it out.
