Thank you, rjm65. 

PCNetSpec, and Peppermint's supportive community, successfully got us through this one.  My neighbor, who owns the computer, and who is loving Peppermint 5, is absolutely delighted.  He knows the Peppermint community is absolutely wonderful, and the resolution of this issue has made his day.

To all who participated here, as well as to our well-intended, and highly regarded, rjm65 --thank you all very much, ;)

perknh & his very happy neighbor

My rule of thumb when i get a tower machine in my shop is if it has ps2 keyboard and mouse plugs then that is what I put on it when i run it on my work bench... 
However my cousin had a old tower like this and he has usb mouse and keyboard and I could never access his bios it was a pain in the rear end i always had to crawl under his desk and install a ps2 to do any work on it...    :)

That's why I didn't respond last night.  I knew I would need to go under the desk, and behind that computer this morning.  And that's not all that easy to do before having your first morning coffee!  ;D
