make sure yu have the evdev + joydev kernel modules loaded..
you can get a list of the known devices in /proc..
(cat /proc/bus/input/devices) which should show you which hardware
is registered with which device..

oh and don't forget to load the gameport and joystick modules for
your specific hardware..
