Just did and nothing there either.  There is a XFree86.setup.log which 
indicate errors trying to configure the mouse but nothing else.

If there needs to be an attempt to reconfigure X (which there was until I 
manually fixed the psaux stuff), down this re-enalbe firstboot?

After trying system-config-mouse and system-config-display, I gave up and 
fixed thing manually:

1. changed the sym-link from /dev/mouse->psaux to /dev/mouse->input/mice

2. changed /etc/X11XF86Config to use /dev/mouse instead of /dev/psaux

After doing that, X works fine with the new kernels (and old ones as well).

The kernels are all UP since the SMP kernel does not work with the NICs I 
have.
