They don't work :-( I have to run mine on PS/2 via an adaptor. There is
a patch in http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=kern/70607 to fix
this. I tried the first version of the patch; the mouse worked but there
were other problems. There have been several modifications done to the
patch since then that I haven't tried.
