usb mouse

I'm having no luck in getting a USB Mouse to work...

/etc/fstab reports:

none  /proc/bus/usb  usbfs  defaults  0  0

On boot up into a Knoppix 2.4.20-xfs kernel I always

usb.c: registered new driver usbdevfs
usb.c: registered new driver hub
usb-uhci.c: $Revision: 1.275 $ time 18:50:40 Nov 15
usb-uhci.c: High bandwidth mode enabled
usb-uhci.c: USB UHCI at I/O 0xfce0, IRQ 9
usb-uhci.c: Detected 2 ports
usb.c: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 1
hub.c: USB hub found
hub.c: 2 ports detected
usb-uhci.c: v1.275:USB Universal Host Controller
Interface driver

with the mouse plugged in when I boot, I additionally

usb.c: new USB device 00:07.2-1, assigned address 2
usb.c: USB device 2 (vend/prod 0x45e/0x39) is not
claimed by any active driver
usb.c: registered new driver hiddev
usb.c: registered new driver hid
usb-uhci.c: interrupt, status 3, frame # 231
input0: USB HID v1.10 Mouse [ Microsoft Microsoft
5-Button Mouse with IntelliEye(TM)] on usb1:2.0
hid-core.c: v1.81.1 Andreas Gal, Vojtech Pavlik
hid-core.c: USB HID support drivers

lsmod reports the additional modules keybdev, hid,
mousedev and input in addition to usbcore and usb-uhci
that are always there.

As far as I can tell the mouse is recognised (albeit a
Microsoft mouse borrowed from work...!?), so what more
do I need to do to get it working?

Using my 2.4.22 kernel I get a complaint of failed
attempt to load keybdev, but then, I disabled that in
my kernel compilation. Why do I need keybdev for a
mouse anyway?!
