Today I tried to compile 2.4.6-pa11 kernel (cross-compiling with my P800, it was horrible sloooooow with 721/60 :) and it almost succeeded. Everything else works, but PS/2 keyboard won't just work. Nothing comes to screen when typing. Logging from network works as usual. Kernel seems to recognise keyboard:

Known problem, try unplugging and replugging the keyboard, while the
system is running.  Works for some people.
