OK it is *old* and *slow* like me but this 386SX runs freeBSD.

I am being driven crazy by trying to get the mouse to work with X.
Tried a serial mouse also but no luck there either.

If there is any movement at all it is jerky and sometimes freezes. I 
think the bios hard sets the uarts. Does anyone remember the key
sequence to get to the bios on a Packard bell of 1990 vintage?

Or, any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

up on an intranet! wow! can hardly beleive an ole geezer can still
figger it out! ;-) )
