Hello. It's been a while since I've done any serious manipulation of my Linux install, so I'm a bit rusty.

Anyway, I've Xubuntu 6.06, and I want to change out both the monitor and mouse without re-booting (can't lose that uptime, you know.) The current monitor is a Dell 17" CRT and the mouse is an old Logitech 3 button PS/2 mouse.

The new monitor is a 17" flatscreen Viewsonic and the mouse is a generic 3 button optical (USB) with a scrolling wheel.

Has anyone done this before without a restart? How did you get that done?
