This indicates a non-OS problem. _Every_ USB device should cause
a maesage when it is attached, even if it's just a boring message
of the kind "ugen1.1: <vendor 0x1234 product 0x5678> at usbus1".
Check the USB cable. Try other USB ports. Cross-check ports with
the mouse or the keyboard. I suggest doing this when the system
is up and running, so you'll find it easier to spot the new
messages at the end of "dmesg" output, your console, your
X console, or the /var/log/messages file (whatever you use to
get the messages).
