Why don't you post the related mouse configuration from your xorg.conf first.
Second, give details. Doesn't mouse work at all or works with errors. What kind of errors if yes.

XORG.CONF details

this is the first time i take a look for xorg.conf. i'm kind of new here ands from what i understand it's a X config file for input/output devices.the problem with the optical mouse is that the cursor is moving very slowly, with some shadows on the screen i you know what i mean. now here is the section for mouse configuration:


Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Synaptics"
Driver "synaptics"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Protocol" "auto-dev"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"
Option "LeftEdge" "120"
Option "RightEdge" "830"
Option "TopEdge" "120"
Option "BottomEdge" "650"
Option "FingerLow" "14"
Option "FingerHigh" "15"
Option "MaxTapMove" "110"
Option "VertScrollDelta" "20"
Option "HorizScrollDelta" "20"
Option "MinSpeed" "0.3"
Option "MaxSpeed" "0.75"
EndSection

note that i have two mouses. one is a touch pad and the other is an optical three buttoms mice.now i don't know which driver if for the touch pad and which is for the other. i have couple of other drivers too :

[[root@Fedora etc]# cd /dev/input
[root@Fedora input]# ls
event0 event1 event2 event3 mice mouse0 mouse1 mouse2 mouse3

i don't now if can try using one of the other drivers to make it work. dependingon the xorg.conf , both nouses are using the same driver and i don't know which is which as i told you ..... thanks a lot
