(www.defcon1.org is the source) What I am trying to do is set up a USB Wheel Mouse (actually it is a wireless mouse/keyboard ) with FreeBSD 5.2. FreeBSD recognizes the keyboard just fine (the wireless hub for the keyboard & mouse attaches to a usb port). Is there anything that I need to do differently.
Does your mouse show in the system's boot messages? You can view these
messages with the dmesg command. Lines concerning a USB mouse should
show as lines beginning with umse. Also, what does the usbdevs command show?

The FreeBSD Handbook is your bible for learning the system :)
