about the how bitchy eMachines M6805 laptop is. But hey, I got one of that
before I read all those comments. I am trying to install Gentoo on my eMachines
M6805 laptop. I have tried to install from &quot;install-amd64-universal-2004.3-r1.iso&quot;,
&quot;install-amd64-minimal-2004.3.iso&quot;,<o:p></o:p></span></font></p>

giving the booting option pci=noacpi. It boots perfect, but when I get a prompt
I don't have any keyboard working. My laptop keyboard doesnot work. I tried to
connect USB keyboard, but that doesnot work either. <o:p></o:p></span></font></p>

is it is not able to enable the USB ports, and the keyboard hardware for the

tell me where I could find the Gentoo linux Live CD that has emachines kernel.
Or how can I get the keyboard working during the installation.<o:p></o:p></span></font></p>
