I was about to start prepping my DEC 3000/400* for the install of
NetBSD. Now I have a bit of a problem. I have the VSXXX-AA.B03 mouse, the
one with two wheels instead of a ball. The firmware doesn't know it's
connected anymore. This has happened once or twice before, but restarting it
straightened it out then. Now, rebooting doesn't halp at all.
I have a ball mouse at home, that I'll bring in tomorrow to try.
I'm asking here, to see if anyone else has seen this problem, and
fixed it. If it matters, I have a LK401-AA keyboard hooked up too. I don't
see how that would make a difference though...
