It was a wise decision to go with the LiveCD. Linux handles the low
quality USB cable drivers with much less fuss than OS X or Windows.
Unfortunately, it seems Linux doesn't support your keyboard driver!
You'd think it would just work as a generic HID like all other
keyboards...

Might as well admit defeat and go back to Plan A: install the
appropriate drivers on the native OS. I suspect the link under the
"counterfeit/generic" section is what you need for your cable:
