During an install or when LILO is active a system is limited to what devices the BIOS understands and can talk to. Unless you have a system BIOS that can be told to use a USB keyboard you won't be able to use a USB keyboard for those activities. Of course once the OS has loaded it no longer uses the BIOS to access devices and the USB keyboard will work.

sorry, but this has something to do with a usb keyboard driver that should be used during the install or lilo boot.
I can go into my pc's bios setup easily, proving that the pc's usb bios drivers work correctly.
