Not sure how relevant this may be, however check the /dev/mouse *is*
/dev/mouse  as opposed to /dev/Mouse, or some other caps arrangements.




1. Mandrake 7.1 won't recognize my Maxtor 36147H8 60 GB ATA 100

Damnit... I have the same frickin' problem with my ATA/100
drive/controller. RH 7.0
installed fine, but for some reason RH 7.1 and Mandrake 8.0 hang during
install startup.
I've read that this is because these distro's try to probe the drive or
something, and get
locked up because of it's ATA/100 nature. I don't know the details, or a
but I want to get RH 7.1 on this computer! If you find any solutions,
please let me know.
