I had this problem with SuSE. Don't ask me why, but some perfectly ordinary 
PS/2 mice don't seem to work. I think it only occured since XFree86 4.x but 
I'm not sure. I can only advise you to try a different mouse, you can get 
them pretty cheaply and if you buy it from one of those shops that is happy 
to refund without arguing with you you can be sure you won't lose out.
