i have windows xp professional media center updated to 2004. Can i have both
a regular keyboard and usb mouse plugged into my computer AND a 'wireless'
keyboard and mouse? Would the Network Wizard have to be used? Would it make
everything run slow? any answers to questions i haven't asked?

A wireless keyboard or mouse does not use networking. They use human
interface device drivers. The Device Manager might show two drivers
installed for the devices, but one or the other must be the installed
driver. That will be the device recognized.

I've not done that in XP, with 98SE though for a friend's dentist reception.
Also connected a second (cloned) display for him. No problems at all, except
they have to remember NOT to use them at the same time, as it might be
disruptive... :-)
