USB Mouse

Hi again.

One of my PCs has a Logitech wheel USB mouse. I have to use an old 1994 serial mouse to get through the installation, as the USB one is not detected during instal. BearOPs distro has - at the end of the instal oddly - a config mouse section where you can then select USB mouse. I don't know how the USB mouse will behave after full instal/reboot - anyone have any experiences in this area? (I can't reboot - LILO hangs & gives Kernel panic message -same as other posts here) - see my next post.

Thanks! -Tunes.

You need to set the BIOS to assign an IRQ for USB devices
