Bootit NT not recognizing USB keyboard

  1. Greetings,

    My old keyboard (with a PS2 connector) worked just fine with Bootit NG version 1.75b. When the old keyboard finally died I bought a new keyboard that does not have a PS2 connector. It has only a USB connector. Bootit NG does not recognize the new keyboard. When I try to type a file name in a Bootit NG dialog box nothing happens. The keyboard works just fine with Windows XP SP 3.

    Another symptom is that the Num Lock light is dark when I boot into Bootit NG. I assume this means that Bootit NG does not have driver code for USB keyboards.

    I am on a tight budget and cannot afford to buy another keyboard (if one exists!) with a PS2 connector. Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can get my USB keyboard to work with Bootit NG?
