Hmm, this may be the design of the system, but from experience I can say
that I've only had one computer that wouldn't later use a mouse or
keyboard if it wasn't plugged in at boot. All my systems for the last
three years will happily boot with nothing plugged in and use a mouse
and keyboard whenever you want to plug them in. That one system that
needed the mouse/keyboard plugged in at boot was Winblows. It would
work fine in Linux.
