    keyboard and mouse are freezed


    whenever i start rh9,mouse and keyboard are freezed, it shows the pointer, but of no use, i cannot use it... i cannot type the username, since the keyboard is also idle. i just installed rh9 5days ago.
    the mouse and keyboard worked when i installed rh9, i hav serial mouse, rh9 took the mouse as generic 2button mouse, since the name of my mouse was not included in the list(a4tech wheelworks mouse).
    i reconfigured the mouse from 2 button generic mouse t0o wheel mouse and it was freezed. so i rebooted only to know that now my keyboard was also not working.
    after inserting the bootdisk floppy when i ran linux rescue it went smoothly but again no mouse and keyboard, but the thing i noticed while booting was that linux initializes the mouse and keyboard as USB
    "Initializing USB Mouse [OK]"
    "Initializing USB Keyboard [OK]"
