That's bizarre. I just checked with Belkin to see if the design had changed
or if there was a firmware update. Their tech support said the box still
won't emulate mice on all 6 channels simultaneously, so if you are looking
at PC 1 and boot up PC 2, PC 2 will not detect the mouse. Note that once
the mouse is detected (during whatever mouse detection stage your
particular OS has), you can switch freely without losing the mouse.

I just find it irritating having to watch a stupid blue screen while NT
does it's hardware detect thing. I'd rather be working on another PC while
another booted.
