    You receive these messages in the boot of the kernel?
    wish version of slackware you are using?
    wish version of the kenel you are using?

    USB keyboard

    I suppose that you can boot when you're keyboard is plugged in but you can't use it.it's seems that the kernel is not enable the usb keyboard support then if you have the source of you're kernel just reply me to solve the problem if you don't have you can download from the internet.
    the only one solution it's to enable the usb keyboard support in the kernel then we should compile the kernel again.

    tell me what you decide to do.

    I have the source of the kernel but don't want to recompile. Instead I will use "switching connector" (from USB to PS2 port).

    Are you sure the problem is in the kernel? I used USB mouse without any problems with the same OS and kernel.

    Thanks for the help

    USB keyboard

    There is two possibility,first one the usb keyboard support it's not enabled in the kernel.
    second one is your keyboard it's not supported at all by the kernel

    but normally the kernel of suse comes with these options,the you can try a new version of the kenel,or as you said a converter can solve the problem,
    tell me some information about your keyboard to see if it's supported by any new kenel.
