Just my experence here, I'm using a USB KBD and PS/2
mouse just fine.
ukbd0: Microsoft Microsoft Natural Keyboard Pro, rev
1.10/1.11, addr 3, iclass 3/1
My kernel config has:
device atkbdc0 at isa? port IO_KBD
#device atkbd0 at atkbdc? irq 1
device psm0 at atkbdc? irq 12
That said, I A) can't pause the bootloader (no option
in my BIOS for legacy USB support) B) or can I use a
PS/2 KBD at all with this configuration.
Hope it helps you out.
