:Interesting. 2CSNAP-20040827-2330-GCC2.iso goes all the way to login 
:prompt, but then I can not type anything via keyboard (connected via 
:PS2-to-USB converter since this machine has USB for keyboard and mouse 
:and NO ps2).
:I CAN type at boot menu - for example I can select verbose menu there. 
:But not after the kernel is loaded.

    This sounds like a classic bios controller not letting the kernel
    connect to the usb keyboard.

    Turn off legacy keyboard support in your BIOS.  You probably won't
    be able to type at the boot prompt, but I'll bet you can type at
    the login: prompt.
