Because of the age of BIOS, I think your will have a hard time getting it to work until the machine boots into an OS and loads the OS drivers for USB devices. See also: https://www.redhat.com/archives/redhat-install-list/2003-Jun... You might make and boot to a mini-OS with the drivers and then launch GRUB from there, but what a PIA. I'd probably just use a PS2 keyboard and call it a day - I've never had a problem with their working... Sorry I couldn't be of more help, but I think it's a matter of working with more modern devices than the 2000 vintage BIOS adequately supports w/o the assist of drivers provided by the OS. You perhaps *might* find a BIOS firmware update that addresses the issue, but it looks like the latest offered is a 2001 version: http://www.tyan.com/archive/support/html/b_tg_100.html
