Getting sound from my Alesis QS 8.1 to Cubase VST

I don't know what I'm doing wrong:

I have an Alesis QS8.1
Cubase VST ver 5
A Sony VAIO PCG-XG39K running Windows 2000 Professional, PIII 850, with an internal Yamaha DS-XG pci audio card.
Midiman 2X2 USB

I connected the midi-out from my keyboard to the midi-in on my midiman and the USB from my midiman to the USB connector on my Sony Vaio.

I start up Cubase VST 5, and press keys on my keyboard. When I do this I see the light on my midiman flash, but nothing on my software registers that is sees anything coming in -- the level indicator should show something, but it doesn't.

I was wondering if anyone knows if this setup should work or if there is something else I need to do or buy to get my keyboard working with my sequencer software.
