Microsoft Wireless keyboard and mouse opensolari

So today at work, I popped in an OpenSolaris 2008.11 cd and loaded it up on a Dell Optiplex 620. After I booted up and got to the desktop, I realized that only the wireless keyboard worked and not the mouse.

After mucking around a few minutes, I gave up and did a Ctrl-Backspace to restart X and get to the login screen where I could log in and get to the failsafe console. I really just wanted try some zfs things on this version ofOpenSolaris. FYI, you cannot zpool attach a device that is smaller than the device you are attaching to it. So if you are trying to create a mirror of two disks, you need to start with the smaller one first. Sucks to learn that the hard way.
