USB keyboard & mouse on Sun Ultra 5 w/PCI USB card

I recently inherited a Sun Ultra 5 from my company which I would like to use 
as a LAMP server.  I downloaded the 13-CD sarge testing distribution 
(official snapshot 11/07/04) and got the system up and running normally with 
the Sun keyboard and mouse.

I have it connected to a 4-port USB KVM switch, and I bought and installed a 
Belkin F5U219 3-port (2 external, 1 internal) USB 2.0 PCI card so that I can 
use the USB keyboard & mouse instead of the Sun keyboard and mouse, which  I 
would really like to get off of my desk.

For the life of me, I cannot get the sparc to accept input from either the USB 
keyboard (Microsoft Internet Keyboard Pro) or the USB mouse (Kensington 
Expert Mouse Pro).  When I plug in an external USB 2.0 CD-RW drive and type

        cdrecord --scanbus

the CD-RW drive shows up just fine.  Thus the USB subsystem appears to be 
functioning in general.  On bootup, I also get plenty of messages indicating 
that the kernel found a USB keyboard and mouse.  Under the double lines below 
is an excerpt from 'dmesg' that looks relevant to me.

Does anyone out there know how to get a Sun Ultra 5 to accept input from a 
PC104 USB keyboard and a USB mouse?  Any hints would be greatly appreciated.
