Moved up? To something that's still at RC4 and hasn't had active development in some time? Interesting definition of moving up. Which version of DSL-N? There was a problem with USB in RC3, iirc.
USB mice *work* in DSL. Run xsetup. That's the first option it gives you after choosing xvesa or framebuffer. I've never had a problem with any USB pointing device (mouse, trackball, etc.) with 2.4 kernels.
If you need to check to see what's mounted, what's inserted but not mounted, etc., there are several options.
To check what's mounted:
To check if a USB device is inserted and recognized:
To check if hotplug has set mount points in /mnt
(You're looking for sda1, sda2; sdb1; sdc1; etc., depending on partitions on each device and how many media devices you insert.)
