/dev/mouse and nv drivers

the results are as follows:

ls -l /dev/psaux

crw------- 1 root root 10, 1  2005-04-17 14:25 /dev/psaux


ls -l /dev/input

crw-r--r-- 1 root root 13, 63 2005-04-17 14:25 /dev/mice

crw-r--r-- 1 root root 13, 32 2005-04-17 14:25 /dev/mouse0



Is this ok? Doing this in chroot doesn't work as it says they don't
exist. Also, what I'm trying to do is build a liveCD so would I need all
the graphics drivers??

Thanks again

Donal
