When I reboot in 9.1 I restart in open firmware, and the keyboard isn't working, so I get stuck. I heard the problem is ram related. Someone heard of a fix?

Added any new RAM chips lately?
If so make sure they're seated properly, and all that.

I think you heard "PRAM" related, not RAM.

Reboot and hold down Apple-Option-P-R then wait for 3 chimes - let go after you hear the third one.
All should be well now.
If that doesn't work, unplug all peripherals (KB included) and boot up... does it work now?
Report back...
