I wouldn't really recommends compiling the source code yourself. We do have a lot of code, and even our fast servers takes about four hours to do a clean compile, and if you build from source they will not be automatically updating, and you won't have all the other scripts. The real solution is to get the kickstart CD to work. Have you tried using another keyboard and mouse? I know the user had reported a similar problem and it ended up being that the mouse and keyboard they were using were somehow not been recognized by the kickstart CD, which is actually just a standard debian linux boot CD, so it's really a driver problem and nothing to do with Pluto. Our programmers are based in Europe, and work from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. GMT, you can also initiate a live chat request during those hours and then we can transfer you to someone who can help troubleshoot, but my guess is the first thing you does can be asked to use another keyboard and mouse.
