I also have similar keyboard troubles with my P2B-LS, when I would not
be able to use the keyboard to select an entry to boot at LILO prompt.
Setting a PS/2 keyboard timeout and/or init in both coreboot and
SeaBIOS seems to help, but not sure if it helps 100%.
And how do I set up board variants? At this point we should be able to
group the Asus P2B family into 4 boards plus variants:
P2B+P2-99 (3 DIMM, served by asus/p2b)
P2B-F+P2B-L/S/LS (4 DIMM, served by asus/p2b-ls, the "L"AN works fine
without any work from coreboot; while I still haven't figured out
terminations of the onboard Adaptec "S"CSI device)
P3B-F (4 DIMM, served by asus/p3b-f, it needs extra code to enable SPD)
P2B-D+P2B-DS (4 DIMM, SMP, served by asus/p2b-ds)
