  I am going to test that on my other HD, thanks Chuck. Dejan, you ask
me what problems do i have with xorg and the keyboard, for that i
prefer to start one new post, because the subject is not correct for
my other problem.

  Now for this post, thanks for all the info, i was thinking that we
could install xorg or xfree86 from packages on 5.4-Release.

  Iam going to test first Chuck tip, next build xfree86 from ports,
but first let see i can make my kbd works with xorg. Thanks to all.

  Every day we learn something new.
