I'm getting the message, "Fatal Server Error: Cannot open mouse
(device not configured)".  I have a PS2 mouse that worked just fine
before.  I understand what's involved in getting it to work...

I know how to include psm0 in the kernel (and exclude the other
choice).  I know how to MAKEDEV psm0 in /dev.  I know how to
select that mouse during the install (and I did all these things).
I know how to run /stand/sysinstall and configure X86... I chose
/dev/psm0, I chose "use META characters" (so i could emulate a
3 button mouse).  Again I had this all working before.

Other facts.

I had FreeBSD running just fine on a tiny little IDE drive, but
ever since I installed a fast/wide, new, improved, huge SCSI disk, 
and 4X SCSI CD-ROM, I've been having lots of problems.  I managed to
resolve all of them, *except* that I can no longer run X86Windows
(forgive me I don't remember what you call it).  Before the SCSI
stuff I had it running, and I configured both twm and fvwm to work.

I set things in the BIOS both on and off.  I tried NumLock both
ways (after reading the FAQ).  I turned off IDE in the BIOS.

I have installed all this at least 20 times (due to HW configuring
problems).  I don't know where to turn next.

Please Help!
