    You need to use a Windows XP CD that has Service Pack 2 integrated. If you don't have one, you can make one by following the tutorial here.

    Double-check that, because the symptom you're describing (no keyboard functionality) is exactly what happens when you try to use an XP CD that does not have SP2.

    No, it won't, during the installation process full USB support is only available with SP2 integrated discs. Also, keep in mind that you must use either a retail (non-upgrade) version of XP, or a non-branded OEM version. If you're using a CD that came with another computer, it might be tied to that vendor's hardware.

    Why don't you just take a look at that article and create a slipstreamed disc yourself? This way, you can be absolutely certain that it is the correct disc.
