http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N51B0gi-g0U I used this video for installing, this is last version of Plop.I set BIOS to boot from CD-ROM before but it didn't work.So i installed Plop and restarted the PC without setting  the BIOS to boot  from the CD.

thats not an installation, its only adding an entry to the boot.ini. when you add a second boot option for your windows to the boot.ini, then you don't say that you installed the windows, or?

I set BIOS to boot from CD-ROM before but it didn't work.

"didn't work" can mean anything. -> its not an usable information.

however, when you cannot select the plop boot manager from the windows boot menu, then it does not have anything to do with the plop boot manager. maybe your bios does not support usb keyboards when you outside of the bios.

So I can see that I'm not the only one who would need integrated USB keyboard (HID) driver inside PLOP. I still hope that one day a new version will bring it on :)
