Dell Remote Access Card 5.2.1

Heya Folks;


I have multiple machines with Dell Remote Access Card's in them running
FreeBSD 5.2.1-RELEASE-p#.


I cannot for the life of me, find a way to get the keyboard to work once
the machine has booted into FreeBSD.


I know on 4.9-X you can set a kernel option that "forces" the machine to
think it has a ps/2 keyboard plugged in.

Although, that same option in 5.2.1 (it looks like) is for "auto
probing" for a keyboard on the ps2 port... 


Any ideas how to get this to work?


I would love to get it working.


dmesg show's at-keyboard controller, but no atkb device directly.


Any help at all, please let me know!


If you need more specific details, like DRAC model# or anything, just
