No USB Mouse or Wireless adapter.

Hey all, I have a dual boot with XP Pro and Slackware 10.1. After I got slack installed, I found out that my Wireless USB Logitech Laser (not optical) mouse doesn't work However my USB Saitek keyboard works fine. Also, after a succesful ndiswrapper installation, my MN 510 Wireless adapter isn't being found by Slackware either.

Confused...any suggestions?

For the mouse issue "modprobe usbhid" and see if it works.
Also check /etc/X11/xorg.conf and try changing the mouse to
"/dev/mouse" or "/dev/input/mice". The same mouse used on
different boxen here has to have those different options.

As for ndiswrapper, I'm using madwifi, and can't help there.

Use Google <Linux> like you own it.
