Mouse, Sound, Netword card problems

I recently installed Slackware 9.0 and here are my probs at the moment.

1. Mouse
Starting up KDE the mouse pointed won't move unless I click the connect button on the wireless receiver, then its ok.
The scroll wheel won't work at all.
I have a Logitech Cordless Optical mouse plugged into a USB port.

2. Sound
I have an onboard ac97 chip on a GA-7VAXP motherboard. I ahve tried modprobe'ing on ac97, ac97_codec and they seem to work when I lsmod, but on reboot, I lsmod and they are gone again.
Do they only install with KDE startup?
Still, sound will not work.

I have read to type modprobe via86cxxx_audio but I get an error, no such module.
(I assume the xxx aren't meant to be substituted for a number?)

3. Network card
I ahve onboard Realtek chip on the ga7vaxp mobo PLUS a Dlink 530TX network card as well.
On boot of Linux I get this error several times down the screen:

/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/net/8139cp.o.gz: insmod /lib/modules...(and so on) failed
insmod 8139cp failed.
Then a hint about these errors can be caused by incorrect IO or IRQ parameters?

Thanks for your help.
