switch to <-> computers by KVM and no problem. I'm about to
Option "AutoAddDevices" "Off" to my xorg.conf
Done. I just noticed that in rc.conf is:
# -- sysinstall generated deltas -- # Wed Oct 13 08:03:06 2010
and yet the console mouse is present. Strange... .

I vastly prefer X11 because it allows xterms and more. X is
necessary on my server because of my UPS as well as because it
will be my new printserver.
