Hi, all..

I have a PS/2 mouse. In order to make my Microsoft mouse work, I did
rebuild the kernel as follows,

   1) % cd /usr/src/sys/i386/conf

   2) % cp GENERIC GENERIC_MOUSE

   3) edit the GENERIC_MOUSE by inserting following 2 lines,

       options	ALLOW_CONFLICT_IOADDR
       device	psm0	at isa? port "IO_KBD" tty irq 12 vector psmintr

   4) % config GENERIC_MOUSE

   5) % cd ../../compile/GENERIC_MOUSE

   6) % make depend

   7) % make

   8) % mv /kernel /kernel.old

   9) % mv kernel /kernel

   8) % sync

   9) % reboot


But the booting with a newly built kernel is HUNG at the last stage:
 
       changing root device to /dev/sd0a"

No matter what I typed, system does not respond.

Even when I tried with "/usr/src/sys/i386/conf/LINT" by uncommenting

       options	ALLOW_CONFLICT_IOADDR

, I had the same problem....


I have a MICRON Powerstation plus, which has a PS/2 style mouse with
PCI SCSI-2 1G disk. 

I have 3 questions:

        Are there anybody who has same experience like me ( I hope not!! )?

	Why that happens? and,
       
        In case of that situation, what is the best thing I can do
        except reinstall from the scratch?

Thanks.       

Regards,
--Uh
