Guillemot Force feedback Jet leader

I have a Guillemot Force Feedback joystick that I'd like to use under Gentoo. It's a USB Force Feedback joystick, so I compiled and modprobe'd the iforce module, as this should support this joystick. However when connecting the joystick, no js* devices are created. I use kernel 2.6.18-gentoo-r6. Here's the relevant output from dmesg:
usb 3-2: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 2
usb 3-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
There is also an entry in /proc/bus/usb/devices:
T:  Bus=03 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=01 Cnt=01 Dev#=  6 Spd=12  MxCh= 0
D:  Ver= 1.00 Cls=00(>ifc ) Sub=00 Prot=00 MxPS= 8 #Cfgs=  1
P:  Vendor=06f8 ProdID=0003 Rev= 1.00
S:  Manufacturer=Guillemot Corp.
S:  Product=Jet Leader Force Feedback
C:* #Ifs= 1 Cfg#= 1 Atr=40 MxPwr=  2mA
I:  If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 2 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff Driver=(none)
E:  Ad=82(I) Atr=03(Int.) MxPS=  16 Ivl=8ms
E:  Ad=01(O) Atr=03(Int.) MxPS=  32 Ivl=4ms
. lsusb gives:
Bus 003 Device 009: ID 06f8:0003 Guillemot Corp.
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Any idea what to do?


gentoo, joystick
