I belive this is correct.  I've been loading usbcore.o, usb-ohci.o and the
mouse.o.  Well, I usually don't load mouse, because when I load usb-ohci, it
only sees a single hub with no devices attached, so when mouse.o hits
usb_register, it can't find a mouse device to register the driver with. :(

I think I know what I need to do with the XF68Config file to get the mouse
working, but until I can get the driver to see the mouse, I'm going to stick
with my ADB mouse :(
