Plugged in on /dev/input/mouse0, and /dev/input/mice. This is done by
udev for me.
The nodes are:

mice     ==> 13:63
mouse0 ==> 13:32

The mouse is USB (wireless) type, keyboard is normal PS/2. This is
right after comleting the LFS book, so nothing is running yet. Its not
a laptop, and has an Intel 850 E chipset.

So it'll be just one eyebrow :)
