USB mouse problems in Slackware 9

I was reading the previous topic on this subject, but it didn't help. I've read the USB Mouse HOWTO at

I'm on an Intel P4 system, and I'm attempting to install Slackware to VMware. I've finished the install, and it recognizes my USB keyboard, but when I attempt to startx, it tells me the device isn't found. I checked the HOWTO, and I followed the instructions. It says there is no such module as usb-uhci or usb-ohci, so I'm wondering if that might be the problem. I try running gpm, and it will start, and if it's using either imps2 or exps2 is shows a filled in block, as if I had clicked on that area. However, I can't move and it doesn't do anything. Can anyone help? Thanks
