i can't tell if the mouse works because i'm still in the bootup
sequence, trying to enter the passphrase to unlock the partition.
however, i've used both the mouse and keyboard on another system with
10.04 and they work fine.  the mouse and KB are the only 2 USB devices
i'm using, and they are each plugged into their own port on the back of
the computer.
