If you can manage to enable ssh (port 22) on the laptop's firewall, you
should be able to ssh into the laptop from another machine with a
working keyboard.  That will take the sting from the problem while you
examine it.  You can open the firewall port by hand with

iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 22 -j ACCEPT
service iptables save

FC3 isn't a great choice at the moment because it is deprecated by
Redhat (although supported for security updates by another group if you
add their repo to your /etc/yum.repos.d/ )

What I would do is first though is try to boot the kernel with acpi=off
on the kernel commandline.  Do this by pressing 'A' at the grub prompt,
and adding


to the commandline.  Another thing to try is that maybe the problem with
the keyboard only comes when X is started, so remove


from the kernel commandline in grub as described above, and add


and see if that makes any difference to the keyboard functionality.
