    Because i read it on linux's page on Wiibrew, it says :
    "Accessories needed: Computer running Linux, SD card with a FAT16 and an ext3 partition, USB keyboard"
    By the way, is it required for Whiite linux Installer ?
    Thank's !

    Accessories NEEDED.

    That means you need them. As in you can't proceed without them. You'll not be able to install it unless you have it. Lacking said items would result in you being unable to follow the installation procedure.

    In a nutshell, no keyboard = no linux.

    Buy one of those USBtoPS/2 converters. They're cheap and they work great. No need to buy a USB keyboard for linux.
