Hi I need some help here regarding getting my mouse to work.

I am using a OEM PS2 Scroll Mouse from Helwet Packard. During the installation of Mandrake 10 (Community edition) the mouse was not working, so fine i went ahead using the keyboard and continue the installation thinking that the mouse would work after installation was complete (i tried all the possible mousetype during the installation process but none worked).

Now after successfully installed Mandrake 10, the mouse is still not working ! I restart my pc in WinXp and the mouse was working well again. Previously I tried KNOPPIX and the mouse gave me no such problem. Just when I decide to go linux way and this unfortunate incident shaken my confidence in linux.

anyone can help me with this ?

Linux Newbie.
