this is OK, if alll the modules are from the same package.

In your usb folder above there is no mouse.udd, I guess you forgot to type it.

Sorry I know, I'm always been too lazy to do it, always waiting for
somebody else to write it ;-)

Regarding the MiNT's mouse driver and the EtherNat, I've never tested
it (I don't have the hardware to do it) and I don't know if somebody
has, I don't know either whether it should work.
In the other hand the USB mass storage driver should work with the
1-19-cur kernel. May be the mouse driver is interfering in some way,
could you use the usbdeb.km (rename it to usb060.km) to have more
information about the cause of the problem?
