I solved my Unsupported keyboard type problem last night.  The
permissions on /dev/kbd were too restrictive for the Xserver to open
read/write.  The -current MAKEDEV script changes the mode of /dev/kbd
to 0666, which allowed the X server to start.

But I wonder if wide open permissions are wise.  Can't the proverbial
"bad guy" open up /dev/kbd and intercept keystrokes?
