Thanks for your suggestion. The original kernel that
was in /boot/ was different from the one in my BootX
folder, but it also worked for the mouse. I recompiled
the kernel with the /boot/config options, and it sill
worked... I thougt I had already done that, but it
seems like I tweaked it a little bit every time and
never got to comiple with just the original config
file. Now I was able to add a few modules and the MP
option, and it still works. I'll remove those parts
that I thought I don't need one at a time, in order
to find when the mouse breaks again.

Thanks again.
