Subject: [SLE] Linux and Windows XP :-)

My system at work is dual booted to SuSE 9.2 Professional and Windows XP. I
was sharing the 2 desktop systems over a KVM until a week or so ago when I
got a TFT monitor, and gave the KVM to someone else. The Keyboard and Mouse
that came with this system are USB, but the old stuff was PS/2.
I plugged in the new Monitor, Keyboard and mouse, booted up to SuSE, and
everything came up perfectly. :-)))))

Then, to test Windows XP, rebooted, the XP boot loader gave me the
presentation for normal and safe modes. But, one I came up in the
ctrl-alt-delete splash screen, neither the keyboard nor the mouse worked.
Maybe the system is telling me not to use XP :-)

Have you checked your bios to enable usb keyboard? Seems like it is but I'd
still check. Than maybe boot xp into safe mode and check the contro panel
system hardware keyboards to see if its mentioned. You may need to uninstall
whats there then reboot and possably install drivers for the usb stuff. Xp
doesn't do this auto.
