	MAKEDEV was last used in the 4.x days, I believe. You
   will need:

device	usb
device	ums

   in the kernel, which should be there, unless you have done
   something to specifically remove them.

	Now, to use them with X, that is a bit more work, and
   somewhat dependent on what you have. Fortunately, some googling
   with usb mouse and X should get you the info you need.
