discontinued zx1 based machine: hp zx6000. problems

Hello, list!

Either my hands are skewed or something is wrong with this ia64 port, or even worse.

i am a debian user.
hardware: zx6000, no ps/2, only usb keyboard ( this one has also 2 usb sockets, so it should also be a USB hub )

my woes:
tried installing sarge: linux 2.4.21 (mckinley-smp).
during the installer keyboard worked.
after the installation's 1st boot - everything worked.
ok.. trying to upgrade....

tried 2.6.9-2 ( mckinley-smp ) - installer worked ok.
after a reboot - cannot use neither keyboard nor mouse.

ok, i thought to myself. let's tune a kernel for the machine.
got 2.6.10. vanilla.
configured, built, rebooted: 
same result as with mckinley 2.6.9

at 1st i suspected it's a problem of bad usb driver taking over the hardware. so i've rebuilt the system with:
a) only ehci - no success
b) only uhci - no success
c) both.

i probably will next week recompile only with ohci support, and so on through all the combinations.

i just am curious: why don't the keyboard/mouse work ?
i am ready to test code, even to code the code, as soon as can locate who's responsible for the problem (which part of the kernel)
i have grepped through the kernel source about zx1 ... haven't found anything interesting  related to usb.
well.... direct me, please.
what shall i do next ?
