I don't know why that product would _not_ work with FreeBSD. Says all it
needs is a USB port to plug in and uses no special driver.

The only question is converting to a USB keyboard and mouse on FreeBSD.
Might not be recognized by your BIOS so it won't work until after the
kernel is loaded. If you need to borrow a USB keyboard there should be
one on your wife's iMac, or I have a spare.

The human mind ordinarily operates at only ten percent of its
capacity -- the rest is overhead for the operating system.
