It sounds like your PS2 keyboard may not be getting detected by the kernel.

It sounds like you can install using a USB keyboard?  If so, once you've
installed, could you please provide the output of the "dmesg" command?

If you don't wish to go through the install, is there any chance you could
press the scroll-lock key when the installer has loaded, press page-up, and
with a digital camera take photos of each screen, pressing page up again
and capturing them all?

Hopefully we'll be able to determine exactly why it isn't getting detected.
