Hmm, that's wierd. If it plugs into the standard ps/2 port I can't
think of a reason that it shouldn't work. I believe the keyboard and

your mouse? I seem to remember something on the list about auto
detection failures with some mice or keyboards, so a search may be in
Sorry I can't help further...
