I'm running Mandrake 9.1, and had the same problem with the mouse. Messing with the mouse control panel (acceleration and threshold values) didn't help. However, adding the line
Option "Resolution" "5000"
Gave me the mouse sensitivity I needed. You may want to try values other than 5000, eg 1000, 10000 until you find what works for you. Remember, you will need to logout and login again to see the changes.
