4/28    Company bought me a  port switcher such that I can use one
        setup to switch between a FreeBSD and Windows machine. Switcher works
        perfectly for windows but I am having problems with it under
        FreeBSD.Problem seems to be related to the fact that I need to
        us a usb-ps2 converter to hook my mouse up to the converter.
        FreeBSD seems to have problems identiying the mouse.
        I see the same behavior when I  just plug it into the ps2 port
        directly. Is this a linux kernel issue perhaps?
        Wish the company had spent the extra $50 to get a switcher
        that was usb instead of ps2. -- lonely linux geek in a windoze realm
        \_ Do you mean FreeBSD kernel?
           -- Yes. FreeBSD 5.3.
