Scot, you are the man! This fixed the problem and thank you for pointing this out. I searched the archives but for some reason I didnt get this article to come up.

Have seen this problem as well on the Belkin KVMs.

I came across this item on another list.  Have not tried it myself but
it sounds like it fixed a few peoples problems with this.

They say to put psmouse.proto=bare on the kernel command line or
proto=bare on the psmouse module command line.



It worked? That is great news. I had an 8 port Belkin switch that
caused nothing but grief. I finally ended up using a 4 port Belkin but
have a separate Mouse on my main Linux box. I had considered the
Belkins KVM's junk because of this problem. If I had not seen this come up in another list I would not have found it
either.


So which option did you use the psmouse.proto=bare or did you use imps?



I rebooted the machine, and when Grub came up, I pressed "a" to edit the kernel commands, and added psmouse.proto=imps, continued booting up, and starting switching between FC2 and Windows XP. Then tried FC2 then switched to FC2. Both seem to be working great now, and I have yet to see the wacky mouse start again.
