Nope, under, eventually.  However, this time, new install media, does the
same thing, but this time, Num Lock continues to function, Enter does
nothing, but I can still Ctrl-Alt-Del to reboot?  I'm typing this email
with the same keyboard, albeit under Windoze...  I'm sure the enter key is
not broken.

Anyway, for whatever reason, this isn't working.  I have a strong suspicion
that the keyboard will work fine _in_ FreeBSD, just not sure how to get the
installer to run... very odd.

I will triple-check my BIOS settings.  Good point.
