Something else you might try. If you can get ahold of a USB hub, you can connect a USB keyboard to that hub along with the mouse and you'll have both. And you shouldn't need drivers for basic keyboard functions. The extra buttons and switches (sleep switch, email launcher, volume control, etc.) won't work but the keyboard will.
And have you tried to enable the laptop keyboard?
