I'm using 3 ports of a four-port KVM (PS/2 mouse & kbd) and every
thing works normally (except maybe some occasional video noise)
without special OS configuration. Glad I got it. FreeBSD 4.8 & 5.4.
As for your booting problem, it sounds like a hardware problem, but it
might be related to power management. I suspect that if the MB
returns to a bootup screen, and then hangs, then it is a MB problem.
Maybe one that can be avoided by disable APM/ACPI in the OS, if you
want it to auto-reboot without hanging.
