The following paste is its state after editing and making a link change as 
noted below;
=======================
Also, I have successfully got things to work with the following two manual 
changes:

1. Edit /etc/X11/XF86Config and replace "/dev/psaux" with "/dev/mouse"

2. in directory /dev, change (delete and add) the symbolic link so instead of 
mouse->psaux you have mouse->input/mice
===============================

2.6.2-1.87 then started fine until my last boot which hung after writing a 
message about setting up Swap space.  I'm now back to an earlier kernel 
because of that problem.
