Right...  And you had to change the pci_dev structure access to the old struct

Ok I decided to do it your way and I get things working sort of.  My machine
does not crash, which is a HUGE milestone for me.  ;-)  (knock on wood at least
not crashed yet.

I don't think you need the patches.  You got the source from the same place I
did.  I was getting some data access exceptions/crashes and that was because I
got my source from BEFORE.

The cvs source should be good.  Now why it does not work?  I don't know.  I had
my fiance try the mouse but I think I may have XF86 set up wrong?  I have to
get home to try it.  But when she (un)pluged the mouse in the software
recongnized it and printed associated messages in my kernel.log so that is

I will let you do the patches.  I can't figure patches out...  ;-0
