    got the answer for my own question:
    adding locale=fr_FR i8042 to kernel line solves the problem.
    this is done as:
    (need to be root)
    vi /boot/grub/menu.lst
    and modify
    title Fedora (2.6.23.1-42.fc8 )
    root (hd0,5)
    kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.23.1-42.fc8 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
    initrd /initrd-2.6.23.1-42.fc8.img
    to
    title Fedora (2.6.23.1-42.fc8 )
    root (hd0,5)
    kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.23.1-42.fc8 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet locale=fr_FR i8042.reset
    initrd /initrd-2.6.23.1-42.fc8.img
    now reboot
