I did figure out how to get to the basic BIOS but USB isn't listed in the Boot order and I can't see a way to add it. : You can access the "basic" bios by holding volume down while pressing the power button when the tablet is off (not sleep, but actually shut down).. Hold the volume down until the bios screen appears..

comment Two mice, one left handed and another right handed. At the same time
I just got it working with two Marble Mouse Tracbkballs. It was a little tricky getting the Scrolling to work right. I had to (with each Trackball) go into the Settings (wrench icon) > Mouse Control Panel and adjust things in the driver control panel. When you launch that control panel EitherMouse will show a msg "LEFT [or right] mouse detected" allowing you to set control panel setting for THAT mouse.

This wont' work on an older Windows XP machine without the SP to support msi installs. (And yes, I run into people with older machines all the time).
