Dear KB:

You are right-on. It turns out that the BIOS has a setting "USB
Emulation", which if turned on, lets a USB keyboard/mouse behave like
the PS2 version. With this option turned on, the USB keyboard worked
throughout the install process. With this option turned off, the USB
keyboard was not visible to the first net-install screen, although
apparently some native USB drivers came into play later.

So here's one "problem" that has evaporated. On to the next one.
