Installing linux with external keyboard
So my laptops keyboard is broken and right now im using an external keyboard and monitor for my laptop, if i was to attempt a dual boot with vista and linux via thumb drive, will the keyboard still register commands during installation? Im thinking that the keyboard needs to install itself onto the computer before itll work, which would mean the keyboard wont work until linux is installed and running. correct me if im wrong please.
