Hi All,

Just downloaded & installed DSL onto my 1GB memory stick. Everything installed smoothly but the o/s wont pick up my keyboard or mouse (both USB).

I did search the forums but couldn't find anything helpful.

Any suggestions?

Cheers

Edit - Should note that I picked the latest version of DSL.

you may need to change an option in your computers BIOS; legacy support is common.

Legacy Support is the most common, look for anything usb related, different manufacturers call it different names.
Just look through all options, you may or may not have anything in your BIOS but that seems the most likely cause.
Good luck.
