Sorry for the slow reply.

In the meantime (since 20060312), udpcast does support USB keyboards. 
This is supported in the full images (for PXE, CD-Rom, ...) but not for 
floppy due to space constraints.

No special flag is needed.

However, if you build your own image using the makeImage script, just be 
sure to include the usbkbd, uhci-hcd and ohci-hcd modules.

Cast-o-matic (as of today) already includes these 3 modules, even for floppy.
