Hi, Lou!

That looks quite strange.  So strange noone dares to respond, maybe.
What Debian version do you run?  What does ``modinfo usbmouse'' output?
I suppose you've tried ``depmod'' without any arguments--does it say
anything?  Same about ``update-modules''.  What about ``grep -drecurse -e
usbmouse /etc/modutils''?

HTH,
Jan.
