I have an older Abit system that has PS2 ports but does not have a PS2 
keyboard plugged in, only a USB keyboard.  It has a BIOS entry 
specifically to map the USB keyboard to a PS2 keyboard equivalent which 
allowed me to run my WinNT partition (only used for some web design SW 
that I have one last active site developed in).  WinNT does not have 
USB support itself.

Try and find a specific USB keyboard BIOS entry and see if that works
