my last e-troubles happened a few months ago, or several weeks
ago, when my old KVM unit began flaking out. the one computer
buddy i have in the seattle area suggested i order a 4-port
iogear. i did and he installed it. it was .LT. sixty bux
and next-to-worthless given my disability.[*] altho i did type
down the conversation between iogear and my friend, i'll spare
you. nutshell: they refused to swap and upgrade for something
i could more readily use. --i'll post the entire story on my
freebsd pages in time.
my new/used dell inspiron-530 is here. it is installed to as far
as i can install it. trouble is that i see on the dell screen
and a message to press F2 to setup. the kvm has the old ps2
plugs and no adaptors to USB. i have the dell kybd here, come
to think of it, but i'm waaay the hell beyond achy to get down
and muck around and test.
what's your best guess, folks? the computer parts stores
around here have largely shut down ...but if ordering an
adaptor or two will fix things, i'll do it.
any thoughts on this? i think i would need at least 547 pain
meds to get back down there and plug in the kyboard; i might

to change ports.
