Angry Labtec Optical Wheel Mouse - Mandrake 10 - Second Stage Install load failure

OK, so I've got this linux high time going on.... Just testing the different distros out there !

I got the Mandrake 10 official release and tried to install it....
Small but huge problem.... The installer won't load second stage install du to my Labtec Optical Wheel Mouse.

The biggy : Mandrake won't install at all

The more or less : Don't have the adapter to plug in PS/2 slot cause I can't find it at home. Damn !!

Anyways, would there be a way/turnaround that I could give Mandrake 10 a try with my mouse or should I just forget it !!??

I though about getting Mandrake Community 10.X (last version), but will it give me the same problem ??? Don't want to download and burn evrything for nothing....

Can't say or give much more info than this (sorry) but can't get further in install...

Thanks for any info..
