My mouse movement ><!! Whereeeeee

Hey all, I have a Logitech 3 button USB mouse.

I installed the default 2.4 kernel, startx, and I could not move my mouse, I went into xorgcfg, and set stuff to auto, logitech..nothing seems to get it moving ><, I tried modprobe usbmouse too...

Any ideas? Thanks

(PS: I have made no changes after the install, so everything is default)

Run lsmod and check if you have hid module loaded. If not, run modprobe hid. If yes, try rmmod hid and check if anything changes.
