Modprobe Loading module error
I keep getting the error

"Initializing USB keyboard: Modprobe : Can't locate module keybdev [failed]
"initializing USB Mouse: Modprobe : Cant locate module mouse dev [failed]

I am using Red Hat linux and trying to compile my own kernel...

Where is this output come from? dmest? syslog?

It seems that these modules doesn't exsit on /lib/modules/<kernel-version> - have you compiled the kernel yourself?

Yes I compiled it myself The output is when the Kernel is first booting up...

Apparently it is using Kudzu probing library (which will not detect any devices) and the anaconda installer program

does anyone know how to get those 2 modules installed?

Device Drivers --> Input Device Support
On kernel, mousedev will be under "Mouse Interface", but I didn't find the option for keybdev.
