> what's wrong with lilo ?

You say that like a person who has:

A) Never seen a machine get as far as LI and then stop, 


B) Never used grub.

LILO was a pretty good thing in its time, but its time was,
well, a long time ago.

I also have usbmouse 1760 0 (unused)
usbmouse is listed ahead of mousedev in the lsmod
output, if that matters.

/proc/bus/usb shows Logitech receiver x 2 (makes sense, one for kbd, one 
for mouse) and driver=keyboard and driver=hid.

/proc/devices has character devices:
13 input
180 usb

Among others, of course.

lsusb sees the mouse and keyboard.  If anybody sees anything wrong here,
please speak up.
