    Hi retired1af

    OK - so far I have tried Vector Linux 5.0-SOHO which has the 2.4 kernel.
    It works, and it can stand keyboard switching. I can unplug at will and it always comes right back.

    I also tried the Vector Linux VL-5.0std-beta2, which is the lightweight "Dynamite" version. It uses 2.6 kernel. I happened to switch away while all the file copying was being done, and found total loss of keyboard control when I returned. This is exactly the symptom I expect.

    The only thing left is to do is remake the 2.4 version, and follow your footsteps in making the kernel upgrade from 2.4, to try and replicate exactly how you arrived at your setup.

    You can see how this could wear me down somewhat!

    I haven't fiddled around with the Standard Beta. As the SOHO version was exactly what I was looking for, there was no need to play around with an additional distro.

    I'm running LN 3.0 / Debian Sarge with 2.6 kernel. I hot swapped a HP keyboard for an old IBM keyboard since I like the touch of the IBM better. It is noisy though, especially the space bar and return key.

    The old ps/2 isn't a problem here.
