I doubt it is a BIOS bug if it is affecting 3 separate non-identical machines.

I do remember seeing something similar myself with Cutemouse some time ago which I worked around. I think it may have used Cutemouse's /P option to force PS2 mode or /Y or /S - I would give them a try.

Interesting. From some past low level testing with a borrowed EEE PC I do know that they are fairly strict in some ways, e.g. if you use a bootable disk which is missing the 55AAh signature it is very unlikely to boot on an EEE PC. This is "correct" by the book but also means there are things that EEE PC's won't boot (e.g. some Linux stuff, Flopper's install disk) which will boot fine on other IBM PC clones which don't observe that rule properly. In this instance the EEE PC is "correct" it is just that not everyone else is following observing the same rule.
