Dear forum members,
I'm trying to install Vector Linux 5.9 Light (Final version) in an old computer, an AMD K6, 359 MHz, with 64 MB of RAM, 8 GB of HD. The computer has a keyboard with AT connector type (DIN5). This connector precedes the PS/2 connector type, I think.
Unfortunately I can't go ahead with the installation process, as after the boot starts the keyboard is disabled. The keyboard leds are turned off and I can't type anything.
I've tried to install another lite distros (Damn Small Linux, Puppy Linux, Kurumin Light, etc.), but I had the same problem. I only had no problem with an old Conectiva Linux version (Conectiva nowadays has merged with Mandrake into Mandriva). But I wouldn't like to install an outdated distribution.
A solution could be install an extra board with a PS/2 connector, but I'm not sure this could work. I could spend money in an old computer, without any results.
Does anybody have any guess? I would appreciate any suggestions.
