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 kernel.org 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
