No mouse or keyboard inputs in X server in FreeBSD 7.2


Hey, I've just installed FreeBSD 7.2 into a VirtualBox virtual machine and i'm having a problem with my X server not inputting any keyboard or mouse inputs. Everything on the command line works fine though. Does anyone know what causes this, or how to fix it or prevent it? Thanks for any help

How did you configure X? Please read here if you haven't already: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO.../x-config.html

Sweet ...that worked to get FreeBSD 7.2 working in my VM, but now i'm having 2 new problems...
1. i installed FreeBSD to my main computer, and i'm having a problem with it recognizing my USB mouse at all...are USB Mice supported, and if so, how can i enable it so i can use it in X?
2. How can i dual-boot FreeBSD and Windows 7? I was thinking of using EasyBCD...

#1: Run # sysinstall and then go to Configure -> Mouse -> Enable.

#2: Dunno. You can try using the FBSD bootloader, or you can install grub from ports.

i've tried the sysinstall enabling of the mouse, but it still doesn't work ...that was the first thing i tried...as far as the bootloaders go, trying either one requires me to restore my Windows Boot Loader...
