I have a USB Logitech G11 Gaming keyboard. The BIOS is configured to enable the 
keyboard at boot. At the NetBSD boot menu from the install CD the keyboard 
works and I can proceed. Once the kernel has loaded and the installer asks if I 
wish to proceed in English the keyboard does not function.

Using a PS2 keyboard to actually install NetBSD-4 I then reboot into the new 
installation and find the USB keyboard actually works.

The issue seems to be that my USB devices are initialised AFTER init(1) has 
started. This means that the install and booting into single user works, but 
the install doesn't seem to use init, and maybe locks out my USB from starting
