Logitech Usb Mouse Strange Problem


I just moved back to Slackware after a brief encounter with Ubuntu. I'm getting everything set back up and I've got two problems right now. I'm in Slackware 10.1 now by the way using the 2.4 kernel.

I set my Logitech usb up. I configured everything like I used to in Slackware 10, and I got it to work perfectly untill I had to reboot my computer. After the reboot it wouldn't work at all.

I checked my xorg.conf to see if anything had changed, and everything looked fine. Here's what I've got

Code:
Section "InputDevice"

# Logitech USB

    Identifier "USBMouse"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "Protocol"     "IMPS/2"
    Option "Device"       "/dev/input/mice"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    Option "Buttons" "5"

EndSection
Code:
InputDevice "USBMouse" "AlwaysCore"
The scroll wheel was working and everything so I've got no idea.

My second problem is, my 6gig iPod mini doorstop. Have any of you had any luck, getting these up and running in Slackware 10.1, and if you did how'd you go about doing it? I don't have the faintest idea on where to start with my iPod so any help will be appreciated.

When I plug it in it say's Do Not Disconnect, and I did a dmesg and it looked like it had been reconized and said something about scsi emulation?

Thank you for any help in advance.

you might try changing the Identifier "USBMouse" to "Mouse1"
or you might just wanna rerun xorgconfig...

i'm also using a logitech usb mouse, and this is what mine says:

# Identifier and driver

Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Buttons" "5"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"

I fixed it by plugging my usb mouse directly in to the usb port on my laptop. I was using a usb hub. I still don't know why I was getting intermittent functionality with it yesterday through the hub, but this works.

Now, my iPod mini is the last thing on my setup list. When I plug it in the "Do not disconnect" screen appears on my iPod and that's when I lose all functionality.

Code:
Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...
usb.c: registered new driver usb-storage
scsi2 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
  Vendor: Apple     Model: iPod              Rev: 1.62
  Type:   Direct-Access                      ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Attached scsi removable disk sda at scsi2, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
sda: Unit Not Ready, sense:
This is part of what I'm seeing, I believe this is all that regards the iPod though... I know allot of people have had problems getting these things to work under Linux, but I can't find anything on the site or google that pertain to iPod's under Slackware.

again any help will be appreciated.
