There's an option somewhere in the kernel that adds support for usb mouses and keyboards. I'm not at my pc atm, so I can't check.
I'll post back asa possible.

Input core support:
-Keyboard support
--CONFIG_INPUT_KEYBDEV:

Say Y here if you want your USB HID keyboard (or an ADB keyboard
handled by the input layer) to be able to serve as a system
keyboard.

This driver is also available as a module ( = code which can be
inserted in and removed from the running kernel whenever you want).
The module will be called keybdev.o. If you want to compile it as a
module, say M here and read Documentation/modules.txt.
-Mouse support
--CONFIG_INPUT_MOUSEDEV:

Say Y here if you want your USB HID mouse (or ADB mouse handled by
the input layer) to be accessible as char devices 13:32+ -
/dev/input/mouseX and 13:63 - /dev/input/mice as an emulated ImPS/2
mouse. That way, all user space programs will be able to use your
mouse.

If unsure, say Y.

This driver is also available as a module ( = code which can be
inserted in and removed from the running kernel whenever you want).
The module will be called mousedev.o. If you want to compile it as
a module, say M here and read Documentation/modules.txt.

Sorry for the delay
