Mouse is no Problem, i can use a serial Mouse, connected to an RS232 Port.

Yes, I'em can use this as RS232 Port, getty will work. I have installed NetBSD
over RS232, i look for this as "tty0".
Under HP-UX i can access 3 Port's. "tty[0-2]". NetBSD found only "tty0".
Domain/OS has "sio0" for Domain-Keyboard and "sio[1-3]" for RS232 on a
DB25 female Connector on th back Side.

Hmm, i become no HP-HIP Keyboard for an reasonably cheap. The Distributor
(near Hannover) have this for ~ $ 300 (Keyboard&Mouse)... ;-(

Yes, thanks. Hope i can redirect Kernel Keyboard Input from a RS232.
I search in the source Code...
In this Moment i search for FAQ from NetBSD, i will build a new Kernel.
This is other as Linux or Interactive Unix...
all the best
