No mouse in RH9.0

Hello there, i just installed RH9.0 and i have a problem with my mouse. The mouse wasnt detected during installation and isnt detected on Linux either. I tried several mouse settings, but it doesnt seem to hook it up. It's a Microsoft Wheelmouse Optical USB mouse. I havenīt tried using ps/2 yet cause i cant find the adaptor, but if someone knows how to help me out, please do.

ln /dev/input/mice /dev/mouse -fs
see if that works first
