[syslinux] Keyboard stops working

Hi all! I'm new to the list (and syslinux for that matter!) but I've 
searched as best I can for a similar problem to no avail. I've been 
using pxelinux.0 + menu.c32 + memdisk to load MS-DOS boot images for a 
few months now using version 3.07. When I introduced a new Intel 945G 
based machine to the network I started getting very erratic behavior, 
ranging from reboots to hangs, to successes while pxelinux.0 was loading 
pxelinux.cfg/default. I noticed 3.09 was out so I grabbed that thinking 
it may fix my problems. Now with 3.09 (or 3.08), pxelinux.0 loads my 
menu, but the keyboard stops working. I know the keyboard is okay 
because I can go into the BIOS and when I put 3.07 back in place, the 
keyboard functions as expected. 3.08 and 3.09 seem to be loading my menu 
reasonably successfully, but I can't press enter, or use the arrow keys 
to select a lower menu item. Does anyone have any suggestions?
   Thanks in advance!
