What did you use to set them up? If you're in the command line, you can try "xf86cfg -textmode" and see if that helps, as some GUI based setups don't always work right.

I have been trying everything that i have picked up but none of it has worked. i want to get rid of the config for the mouse combo and set up it for a Logitech wireless mouse and a ps/2 keyboard.

If your Red Hat was CD installed maybe you should reinstall it with the new keyboard/mouse as the CD install promts for that info during the install.
