    Good day,

    I have acquired a couple of IBM xSeries 330 1U servers. Does anyone know
    if this system supports a USB keyboard? I don't have a C2T breakout
    cable to attach K/V/M.

    I have been able to install a PCI video card to get a video feed, but
    have been unable to get a keyboard/mouse connected.

    Failing this, are there any known places where a C2T breakout can be
    purchased for under $100 Canadian??

    Solved my own question. Yes, the 330 will support USB keyboard and
    mouse, but only when appropriate drivers are loaded. In my situation, I
    am installing CentOS 4. The USB ports don't become active until the
    kernel is loaded. Hopefully I don't need to make any changes in the BIOS!
