Microsoft USB Optical Intellimouse Wont Work

I am running 2.4.22. I have a Microsoft USB Optical Intellimouse. In "make menuconfig" I enabled these options.

SB Human Interface Device (full HID) support
HID input layer support
UHCI (Intel PIIX4, VIA, ...) support

Core Interfaces
Input core support
Mouse support
Event interface support

After running make bzimage I get this error:
drivers/usb/usbdrv.o(.text+0x124b5): In function `hidinput_hid_event':
: undefined reference to `input_event'
drivers/usb/usbdrv.o(.text+0x1252b): In function `hidinput_hid_event':

drivers/usb/usbdrv.o(.text+0x124e1): In function `hidinput_hid_event':
: undefined reference to `input_event'
make: *** [vmlinux] Error 1

I read on a message board somewhere that there was an undocumented dependency so I turned on all the HID stuff and enabled all the input cores but still got the same error.

Also the kernel compiled without error until I added "HID input layer support". But the mouse wont work without it.

I had problems compiling my kernel when I tried to compile built-in HID support. If you're not all the input core stuff as modules already, you might want to try that. It made my mouse work...

I just re-compiled with the HID stuff as modules. Of course the kernel compiles without error now. I will have to wait until I get home however to see if my mouse works. Thanks for the help.
