Try login in rescue mode and then do the following..


#fsck -fA /dev/hda1


where hda1 is ur linux partition where your linux is installed.

I don't think that replacing a keyboard can cause such problem !

Did the kernel give u any error messages when loading?
Could check your boot manager (LILO/GRUB/etc) for any mischievous options.

How is ur console device files working? Things like /dev/tty... /dev/Stty0 /dev/... (was it deleted accidentally due to something, or privileges changed during booting--> Someone's playing pranks?)

Lastly, check on RedHat bugzilla or dev. corner, it could be a bug.

Ok you have now cleared it.. it is bootloader problem I think. Reinstall the grub and tell us. You can do that from rescue mode!
