Debian etch - PS2 mouse port problem

Hi All,

I just managed to install debian etch. While I was doing installation, I didn't plug in my mouse to the ps2 port and then I used the touchpad. The touchpad is working fine.

I remember that I install:
- kde (currently using)
- gnome

After installation, once I plug in the ps2 mouse, it doesn't work. It didn't auto detect it. How do I make it work with my touchpad and ps2 mouse together?

Thank you for your help.
