Mark: Very good
Asus A8N-E motherboard with BIOS 1004 (deliberately backleveled to the oldest that supports dual-core processors)
- AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ CPU
- ATI X300 video card (PCI-Express)
- Adaptec U160 SCSI adapter (PCI)
- Logitech Cordless Optical Trackman
- Gateway 2000 "AnyKey" programmable keyboard *with the F-keys in the right place*; it's a PS/2 device, but the KVM switch accepts both PS/2 and USB devices
- QVS 2-way KVM Switch
- eCS 1.2R with 14.104a SMP kernel
- ACPI 2.13 package (available from BetaZone to those who purchased Software Subscription Services)
- SciTech SNAP 3.1.8 video driver
- AMouse 2.79 (allows use of scroll-wheel and additional buttons on the pointing device)
For a long time I was unable to unREM the USBOHCD.SYS driver without the machine trapping just as it was about to draw the desktop -- which meant that I could not use AMouse, and I had to depend on the "Legacy USB Support" in the mobo BIOS.
Now everything is working with "Legacy USB Support" DISabled in the mobo BIOS. The only disadvantage is that if I want to select a different OS or a different eCS / OS/2 configuration (e.g., Maintenance Partition), I have to reenable "Legacy USB Support" in the mobo BIOS first.
I have found that sometimes I have to switch the KVM a few times before the keyboard is recognized at startup or after switching to the other machine, but I seldom have to reboot or switch to the other machine anyway -- it's a 400MHz PII file server that runs automated nightly backups to a DDS4 autoloader and does what it's supposed to do without any trouble.
The one thing I haven't tried yet is the new APM stuff.
