you need to have gpm installed for the mouse to run on any text-based applications. it should be in the red-hat installation.

Also check that your gpm service is started.
From the text-console log in as root and type ntsysv
Make sure the gpm is checked.
The next time your computer reboots or you change run level the gpm will be loaded if it isn't already running.
