    Cordless mouse not recognized on Gnoppix boot

    Hello, I just downloaded a Gnoppix ISO, burned it, and tried it out. It looks great, but unfortunately it doesn't recognize my Logitech cordless mouse. The base station is plugged into a USB port, which is what I think is the problem. Strangely enough, it does recognize the mouse on boot, but it still doesn't move on the screen after everything loads. What I'm wondering is if there's a command I can add to the bootloader to tell Gnoppix that the mouse is on USB, not PS/2? Or, is there a command for a 'Generic USB mouse?' Thanks in advance.

    I remembered I had a PS/2 to USB adapter. The mouse is working for me now, but my keyboard is not, because it's on USB as well. It's a Compaq, and it DOES work in the GRUB.
