Audio, the 026CH device, I believe the other is on the video card.
Ethernet, the NVETH driver from the latest experimental MultiMac package (all I've tried)
USB, the mouse problems I described. Keyboard here is currently PS2. USB sticks seem really slow and I just trapped the system trying to copy some files to a JFS formatted stick. Doing a test install of ArcaOS 5.0.2.3 from a USB stick saw the ISO get lost a couple of times. Rebooting allowed the install to continue.
Model number, according to the BIOS, it is an XPS 630i, the service tag number is also there.

Thanks Dave, I updated the page.

Now I have the doubt if I should call the page "Dell XPS 720" or "XPS 630i"

I guess it is actually a 630i.
I found that I needed to change the USB drivers and now USB works fine.

Hi Dave.

I updated the Wiki page: Dell XPS 630i

Which USB driver/version is working now?

I'd migrated my install and never thought about the USB drivers, which were set up on an Intel board to use BASEDEV=USBUHCD.SYS x6. Now I have BASEDEV=USBOHCD.SYS instead of those six instances of USBUHCD.SYS. Actually surprised how well things worked with the wrong drivers :)
Thanks for updating the model number, it's confusing when only the BIOS displays these things. I also used the service tag number to check for BIOS updates, it is at the latest.
Been experimenting with the OS/4 kernel as well, unluckily the desktop freezes at startup.

Your experience is just the opposite of mine.  My desktop was freezing up a lot using the kernel that comes with ArcaOS.  With the OS4 kernel, the freezes have disappeared.
