I'm thinking if you can logon in console mode, don't run "startx", but
instead su to root, and try running "sax2". You should find a section
for the keyboard there.
If that fails, you could boot from your install disk, and on the
third-or-so screen, instead of install choose "repair installed system".
Hopefully one of those routes will replace the corrupted keyboard
configuration in X.

good grief! That did it! I did not get a chance to edit anything, it
took me to a video config screen, and then prompted me to save, and
then closed. I rebooted normally, and was able to login. The sound
system was fine, but I did have to specify a monitor and change the
resolution to 1024 x 768 again ...

Thanx so so much ... I'd still like to know why simply setting 3d
acceleration would DO something like that ... but, I'm back working.

WHEW! :-)
