Question 8RDA + Gentoo 1.4rc4 + USB mouse

I need to know what USB modules I need to compile for a stock Linux 2.4.20 kernel.

There seem to be two types of drivers depending on your chipset. UHCI or OHCI.
I have tried the UHCI modules, which is

usb-uhci.o and
uhci.o

insmod fails on the first one and I get a stack dump on the second one when I try to insmod it.

Does anyone know if these are the correct modules I should use for my motherboard, or have a solution to my problem?

The answer to my own query:

Use the usb-ohci and NOT the usb-uhci modules for the NForce2 chipset to enable the USB system.

The rest of the information on how to set-up USB for Linux can be found at www.linux-usb.org.

If anyone can refer me to a good how-to for setting-up and configuring networking ( mostly as client-services ) for Linux please send me a reply.

TIA
