i have hot plugged in keyboards and mice on a range of PE
servers without any issues. but "support" might also be
required by the OS - windows has traditionally had some
issues with unplugging the mouse for example.
this is just a wild guess, i think there might be a way of
finding this out if you search for the technical specs on a
PE which should say it supports the PC98 standard (including
ps/2 etc) and then search for the PC98 standard definition
which should mention hotplug support ?
