Thanks Peter,

I've just discovered after sleeping on it, a tad embarassingly,
that the mouse has an adaptor on it to enable the PS/2 plug.
But underneath it says it's a serial mouse  !!!.

I've just grabbed a real PS/2 mouse from work and i'll
check it when home.

I'm guessing that netbsd must AUTO detect these things
and THEN u get your message's at boot up.

still like to know how to get the source code for a specific
daily current snapshot, if anyone out there can point me
in the right direction i'd appreciate it.

Many Thanks!
