I never got around to trying RDP, but as you say, with no keyboard device in 
Device Manager, it shouldn't make a diff. One of these days, I'll try it. It 
does give me an idea tho': I've been using Tightvnc on my SuSE box, and 
Fedora vnc on on xen box. Both of them have no keyboard. However, I have 
Tightvnc server installed on the domu, and when I connect directly to the 
domu ip, instead of the dom0 qemu-dm, I *do* have keyboard input, tho' there 
still is no keyboard device in Device Manager. This is extremely slow, tho' - 
probably because it is forcing the domu to do the compression in hvm time - 
so it is not an acceptable alternative for general use. It *does* provide an 
alternative to *rebooting* if I want to make a non-gui configuration change, 
tho'. It also means that maybe RDP *would* work, since it connects directly 
to the domu.

Just two - console & vfb, no vkbd.
