Thanks to everyone that has replied, I greatly appreciate your replies,
however the messages are getting confused.

I have reposted this to try and clear things up a little.

I do not have usb-ohci installed. I am running an Asus laptop with Intel
chipset and using usb-uhci

My lsmod shows:

As you can see only mousedev is using input what have I done wrong??!!

AFAIK, you have the correct modules loaded. Try booting without starting X. Do you see the message at the console when you connect the mouse? If you do 'cat /dev/input/mice' and move the mouse, do you get any output?

cat /dev/input/mice gives no output. no errors either (ie no device not found) just blank. cat /dev/input/mice while in kernel 2.4.18 prints characters to the screen. for some reason it appears that input is not being used by hid (it is in kernel 2.4.18)
