[lug] USB Mice and Linux

 Hi all,

 I just bought a USB Logitech wheel mouse. I have the SuSE 6.4 distribution
with USB support. When I start the install everything goes smoothly. SuSE
detects my mouse and I can use it for the GUI install. After install SuSE
drops me into KDM to log in to X, and everything works fine, until I
shutdown the computer and reboot. I get no errors in the bootup process but
my mouse does not work.
 I have tried copiling a new kernel (both from the SuSE distribution and the
2.4 kernel) to the same effect. The 2.4 kernel won't even load the USB
controller driver. I am hoping that it's something simple that I have
overlooked. Does anyone have any ideas?
