Well I already suggested a workaround : find a way to use the keyboard driver
It should be possible to create a xorg.conf to specify that. Or to
edit the hal files, but that's already deprecated with 1.8
Or maybe just removing evdev would work, I am not sure. But you would
need mouse too.

But in any cases, have a look at http://www.x.org/wiki/
