Unhappy Problem with mx500 after applying 2.6.10


I use Mandrake 9.2 with 2.4.22 kernel and I decide to apply 2.6.10 kernel. So.. I downloaded new kernel, patched it with patch-2.6.10-cko3, configured and did all the rest... System runs on a new kernel but there are two main problems :
1. my usb mouse - logitech mx500 - doesn't work...
2. while system is loading the following info is shown:
Fatal: Module i2c_nforce2 not found
Fatal: Module i2c_isa not found
Fatal: Module eeprom not found
Fatal: Module w83627h not found
About the first problem.

On system start appears text-box: usb mouse was removed / psaux mouse was added. Then i got choice to select my mouse but whatever i choose my mouse doesn't work, and it's correct because usb was switched to psaux.
On old kernel mouse works properly, some information from HardDrake (old kernel - 2.4.22):

device file: /dev/usbmouse
protocol: IMPS/2

mouse section in XF86Config-4:
Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/usbmouse"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
On new kernel i get:

device file: /dev/psaux
protocol: PS/2

I tried to do some changes in XF86Config-4 but no result. Any suggestions? I googled a lot but didn't find any solution...

About the second problem.

The question is, where can I find these modules? Any patch or something? On old kernel after typing lsmod | grep ic2 i get all these modules... I don't even know if absence of this modules affects on system performance or stability...

I'd be grateful for clear answers

(p.s.; sorry for my English, I hope you understood what i meant)

You'd have been better off converting to Mandrake 10, which uses a 2.6.x kernel by default... Did you re-compile all your other services, including the USB hotplug modules, etc.??? That is necessary.

I've got the following options selected in section USB Support :[*]Support for Host-side USB
----[*]USB device filesystem
[*]USB Host Controller Drivers
----[m]EHCI HCD (USB 2.0) support
----[m]OHCI HCD support

[m]USB Human Interface Device (full HID) support
----[*]HID input layer support

What's about USB hotplug modules? I looked through kernel config options and did not found anything suchlike...

Any suggestions?

after typing:
modprobe usbmouse
i get

FATAL: Module hid not found.
FATAL: Error running install command for hid

but mouse starts working

(On system start modules: ehci_hcd,ohci_hcd are loaded)
