I have a computer that dual boots into Windows XP or CentOS-4. I removed the keyboard that plugs into a PS2 socket and installed one that plugs into the USB. That works fine with Linux and it works on boot-up to get into the BIOS.

But if I boot the machine, I get the grub splash screen that says it will boot into Linux and to press any key to see the other options. But pressing any key (I tried several different ones) seems to be ignored. I can run Linux or nothing. Is there any way I can diddle grub to make it notice my USB keyboard.
