    You might have to try a manual (text mode) install, see if there is a usb enabled kernel you can boot, slackware has one so mandrake might.

    This post over at linuxquestions.org might shed some light onto the situation. I can see it working in Mandrake9, it *Should* find your USB mouse fine, ive never had MDK fail to detect a usb mouse on me before. From there you again *should* be able to select a custom kernel to install as your default boot kernel.

    I know Slackware lets you do it, but Slack doesnt use a graphical installer, and, funnily enough, ive never tried selecting any options during the slack install process with my mouse before. Now im curious..... :?:

    Anyway, assuming MDK lets you select a custom kernel to install, your next boot should detect your USB devices and let you use your keyboard. The second post at linuxquestions.org i linked to tells you how to set root's password. When he says 'at boot prompt' he means you press LeftShift before linux starts loading. Then type the command needed to get into single-user mode.
