I believe a USB mouse just worked once X started, using a generic USB
mouse and a Solaris supported PCI card from the HAL.

I've never tried a USB keyboard, but I expect it would just work in X.
I also suspect it would work on the console in Solaris.  I don't
expect it to work on OBP on machines that didn't come with USB onboard
(so I would expect a USB keyboard on a U60 to work in X but not OBP).
