Re: K4 - documentation

	I don't bother with xfree86 on a GNU system for myself. But I am
concerned for the people who will be installing GNU for the first time.
Hence the request for some documentation (or pointers) I can include with
the CDs.

The documentation assumes /dev/mouse
/dev/mouse does not exist.
"MAKEDEV mouse"  fails with  "mouse: Unkown device name"

I am assuming that
settrans /dev/mouse /hurd/mouse --device=com0 --protocol=microsoft
settrans /dev/mouse /hurd/mouse --protocol=ps/2
fail because there is no /dev/mouse (both serial and ps/2 cases)
