Did you enable USB support in the kernel? Are you using /dev/mouse or /dev/input/mice? If /dev/mouse -- does the symlink exist?

You can also test the mouse by doing the following:

cat /dev/input/mice and move your mouse around, you should see characters display on the screen if the device is working
