This happened to me too some time ago. The problem is those modules do not 
exist under Kernel 2.6 and they have to be replaced by usbmouse and usbkbd 
or whatever in rc.sysinit. I have done this and I am not getting any errors. 
HOWEVER, you also need to remove them from modprobe.conf.dist AND 
there is an occurance in some files in /etc/hotplug stuff (search for keyboard). 
After commenting all that stuff I got a perfectly working system. This and the 
/proc/bus/usb stuff that should become /sys/bus/usb in rc.sysinit would result 
in a perfectly smooth system! 
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2004-02-17 00:40:54 EST
Actually, you shouldn't need to load anything in rc.sysinit.
Comment 3 Sammy 2004-02-17 10:20:28 EST
I agree. I have all that commented out (the block under the line 
However, the comment sais to get it from hotplug, but last time I 
checked hotplug was also referring to the wrong module. 
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2004-02-17 10:57:20 EST
Hotplug may be referring to the wrong module, yes. But rc.sysinit
shouldn't even be trying to load keybdev/mousedev on 2.6 (they are
built in, as they really should be.)

No complaints about this here, so I'll close it for now. Please reopen
if you still have issues.
