Can you try again with the 2005.0 LiveCD?  If it's still a problem, please reopen this bug.  Thanks!

I think, we can close this one, as I tested USB Keyboard/Mouse on the Pegasos, PowerMac and iBook with a Logitech and Apple combination.  No problems here using the 2005.0 LiveCD.

Closed, reopen if there's still a problem.
