Unhappy Mouse not detected in KVM switch

Hi All,
I am a Linux Newbie.Recently I got a KVM Switch.I have attached four systems to the switch . The problem is that my mouse is not detected under Linux, but it is detected on Windows.
The OS that I am using is FC4 with 2.6 kernel and BestNet KVM switch.
Please somebody help me in getting a solution for detection of mouse in Linux.

In the long run you will probably be happier with VNC. KVM switches are notorious for causing hardware problems.
