/proc/devices does not show psaux, but i think thats ok, since it shows
misc and /proc/misc shows ps2aux

/dev/mouse -> /dev/psaux

when i try to get into x or start gpm, it gives:
gpm:/dev/mouse: device or resource busy
x: cannot open mouse

dmesg shows:
PS/2 auxiliary pointing device detected -- driver installed.

i have a system w/ identical hardware w/ kernel 1.3.81 and it works fine.
