I wanted to ask this questin also, but was too afraid (crying wolf and all
that). The pms driver that's there now was a complete rewrite I believe, but
all it does is hand during boot on both a Dell 450/L and an IBM ThinkPad
350/C :-(

Esp. on portables, which normally only have one serial port, it is *very*
nice to be able to use a PS/2 mouse, 'cause then you can also have a PPP
connection to the rest of the world, and run Mosaic :-) Even cute-er on
a ThinkPad 'cause they have the TrackPoint II in the keyboard.

Merry etc all,
