Unplug / Replug before USB mouse functions

I just installed Redhat 9 on my desktop and everything is running fine, but I'm having a slight problem with my mouse. Although my USB Microsoft Intellimouse is working, whenever I reboot I must unplug it and plug it back in before it's operational. I've got the mouse plugged into a 4-port DLink USB 2.0 hub.

Any ideas?

Do you have the same problem if the mouse is connected directly to the computer instead of via the hub, when rebooting?
