Fedora 13 usb key failure

   Is anyone else seeing this installation failure? On
a Sun W2100Z dual opteron, which currently has x86_64
Fedora 10 installed, I am unable to install x86_64
Fedora 13. I am able to complete the upgrade installation
up to the point where the media check is requested. 
At that point, after the installer's vmlinux has been
booted, the keystrokes on the usb keyboard are not
recognized when attempting to select the installation
media check options. This is quite odd because the
same usb keyboard is usable earlier in the installation
program when selecting the installation method. I am
assuming that this is yet another case of too few
drivers being bundled in the installer vmlinux.
  Is there any workaround for this (as the Sun workstation
only has usb ports for keyboard and mouse) short of
waiting for Fedora 14?
