Taking my laptop and comparing what happens with woody and Knoppix I
found out that a USB mouse being recognized doesn't suffice, you also
have to run usbmgr.
Everything runs smoothely now, but it was hard to figure out.

The graphics chip is not in xfree's list, so xvidtune doesn't run, but
as everything runs smoothely now, it's not necessary.
Will send the data required to the address indicated.

So the even sadder part of fighting with my laptop is history.

So we did survive the first round :-))).
