Well--I'm running a Mac, so am using yaboot instead of Grub--any reports
of Usplash working on PPC?

As for the keyboard issue--I'm downloading the "new" Xorg updates--will
report as to the <shift> vs <caps lock> prob tomorrow

Can't help you with your keyboard problems, but for usplash:

1) make sure to remove any "vga=" lines in your grub config.
2) Check that usplash is installed
3) dpkg-reconfigure linux-image-`uname-r`

I'm not sure if this will be necessary when Breezy is released,
hopefully not.
