Exclamation Boot without GPM

Hello mates!

I've installed Slack without GPM, and, as I was without mouse support,
tried installing GPM with pkgtool.

BUT after wrong configuration (tried IMPS/2), when lilo bootsthe system
with bad configured GPM, everything locks out! The keyb doesn't work and I can't even log on!

I already tried booting from a boot disk and from Slack instalation disk and reconfigure GPM, but when I reboot using lilo, it's all the same:

gpm -imps/2 and a locked login screen!!!

How to remove this GPM?

try -t ps2 first, it's in /etc/rc.d/rc.gpm
if that doesn't work, rename that file to something else
