I am a recent convert to FreeBSD and was impressed by the ease in which you
could load this OS (very different than even Linux). After getting it up and
running I was still faced w/ two problems:

1) On my COMPAQ DESKPRO 5190 and NEC MultiSync 3Fg monitor I can't get the
mouse to be recognized. X Windows will only load if I specify /dev/sysmouse
but, regardless of which protocol I choose the mouse will not work.
2) Xwindows loads at the incorrect screen resolution (windows occupy the
entire screen) w/ SVGA 800x600 settings and Cirrus 5134 chipset specified (I
had similar problems w/ Linux but not as bad).

Can anyone be of some assistance?
