PS/2 Mouse Messes up in Ubuntu Live version

I have a PS/2 Optical Mouse, and it does not work.

I'm working off the Live CD (5.10) (to see if Linux/Ubuntu is for me).

It boots up fine, but when I get to the main screen my mouse cursor doesn't move, however when I Left-click it, the cursor heads to the upper right, and the only thing I can use is the calendar. Please help me with this problem as I can't do anything else.

P.S. Will all my data be DELETED if I feel like making the jump from Windows XP (what I'm posting this on) to Linux/Ubuntu?
