    I have a usb mouse, not the same model, but I'll post what my xorg.conf file says to see if any of it helps you.

    # Identifier and driver

    Identifier "Mouse1"
    Driver "mouse"

    Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
    Option "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"


    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Mouse2"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
    Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

    are you running 2.4 or 2.6?

    if you chose 2.6 in the installer, make sure it has its modules in /lib/modules/2.6.x

    if not , you wont have any drivers

    as long as you have udev enabled too, the mouse should just appear as /dev/mouse, and you can set it up easily using xorg.conf

    my usb mouse works perfectly.
