writing usb and mouse device driver.


I am writing usb device driver and i want some help.
OS that i am using is suse10.2 i am also parallely trying on fedora9. If i write down complete usb driver that is mentioned in your documents, what are the extra things that i need to do apart from inserting that module in to kernel (insmod).If i insert my usb driver module in to kernel how can we stop kernel from using previous usb driver and now kernel should use the driver(module) that i have inserted.
Similarly i have also written mouse device driver for ps2 mouse.But i faced the simiar problem.How we should tell to kernel that dont use previous driver for mouse use that i have inserted.
Please Help Me.If i could get way for this i will be able to run both the drivers.

Have you tried simply blacklisting the drivers you don't want to load?

On a Debian based system you would do this by:
Code:
echo "blacklist somemodule" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
And for documentation:
Code:
man modprobe.conf
