Wireless Keyboard & Mouse

I have a PC @ home which I run several flavors of linux, BSD, and BeOS.

Can anyone recomend a wireless k&M that works well with any of these OS's. I will probably hook it up to a 4 way KVM which I will attach to a PwrMac, a windows PC, and an AIX machine which I picked up from ebay for future learning purposes.

I've had no problems with my logitech wireless mice in linux or freebsd and I've had quite of few of them. I can't promise anything about the keyboards, but I'm sure itll work too (at least the basic keys, can't guarantee anything about any programmable keys). In reality though most keyboards and mice do all the wireless work in the hardware before it ever gets to the motherboard. I have heard of a couple people complain years ago about their wireless keyboards/mice not working but if i remember right they were microsoft keyboards/mice so it doesnt surprise me they require something in the software to work.

Hey thanx. I should have just tried before posting but I didnt think it would work. I tried it with Debian, JAMD, and Suse so far and had no problems.
