Default [lol disregard i munch harbls] Keyboards not (recognized? found? functional?)

I'm currently on my stock HP box (only until I can build, promise) successfully dual-booting Windows Vista and OpenBSD 4.4 amd64.

Unfortunately, many ports I try to build complain that they're only for i386. (I tried editing that in Makefile, by the way, didn't get me far.) I checked the OpenBSD FAQ. No i386 binary support. Fair enough. But I can run i386 on amd64. Cool.

So I burned a 4.4 i386 disc and booted. The keyboard doesn't work. (Microsoft Natural PS/2.) I also tried the HP PS/2 keyboard shipped with the computer and a USB keyboard. I only get any response at all from the Microsoft Natural: Numlock and F-lock will toggle, but stop even that after a while.

This occurs at Shell/Install/Upgrade prompt. It works fine at the OpenBSD bootloader prompt, so I figure it's narrowed down a bit, there.

I also tried my 4.3 i386 disc; same results.

I'd love to give you guys my dmesg, but, you know, no keyboard.

Has anyone ever seen this?
