Your changes to the keyboard section caused an error loading the keyboard
driver. You should probably go back to the previous version of that
section. My suggestion to use "/dev/input/mice" was just for the mouse
section in the file. It looks like you also don't have that since it
gave an error for that as well, which was non-fatal due to the server
flag to ignore mouse failures. You may manually need to create the
entries is /dev for your mouse. Do you have a proper /dev or just the
subset that is commonly used on a rescue disk type environment? With a
2.6 kernel you should probably be using udev to manage /dev.
