YDL Noob having problems with USB mouse on Mac

Okay, actually, I'm having several problems, but the mouse issue is particularly troubling.

I just installed YDL Rome on a g3 333MHz iMac. All went well, till I set it up to automatically log in as a my added user.

Now, it logs me in to KDE, and my keyboard works dandy, but my mouse is useless and just sits in the middle of the screen. I've swapped out mice, tried ALL the USB ports, nothing. It was working fine before I did an automatic log in.

The only other thing I changed from the original config is I added the Mozilla Kiosk (this is to be a public access computer).

I managed to get in and look at XF86Config and it *looks* okay to my untrained eye. The mouse is uncommented and such.

So here's my question: Any ideas on how I can get the blasted thing to work? I can't even get into a term window because I don't know/can't find the key commands for Yellow Dog.

I know it's F12 in SuSE, but that doesn't seem to work in YDL.
