I wouldn't call it a mistake just yet. I'm also running kernel 2.6.9 with
no problems (Red Hat before, gentoo now), but with the EMS USB + PS2 pads.
The kernel seems to at least see your device, and it shows a sane number
of buttons, so that's a start.
What does "ls -l /dev/js0" show?
I'm using udev, and my device shows up like this,
$ ls -l /dev/input/js0
crw-r--r-- 1 root root 13, 0 Sep 24 22:22 /dev/input/js0
p.s. I love the dance games, but I also imagine that dance pads could make
a very interesting control/input device for live music!
