how to acess menu bar on Mandrake 9 with keyboard (without mouse)

Hi, I was trying to reconfigure my mouse on Mandrake 9 but somehow I chose the wrong port for my mouse and now my mouse isn't working.
Can somebody tell me how to acess the menu bar on Mandrake 9 (what key to press on the keyboard so that I can reconfigure my mouse again)?
Thank you.

i think you can press <CTRL>+<ALT>+<function key> to open a terminal console.. Then you can edit the /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file using your preferred editor (e.g: vi).

Just look for:
Section "InputDevice"
Driver "mouse"

and alter the contents of Option "Device" "/dev/xxx" with your correct mouse port.

After that you can restart the X server and check if your mouse is working again.
