Unhappy Mouse not working under kernel 2.6.2 of FSC Amilo A

I just compiled kernel 2.6.2 for my mandrake 9.2. Everything went fine. But my mouse (PS/2 Genius Netscroll+ wheel mouse) and touchpad are not working under X. I found on the internet that in order to have PS/2 mouse woking under 2.6.2 kernel I should turn off acpi. I did it and my mouse works, but touchpad still not.

And since it is a notebook it would be very nice to have both ACPI/touchpad working. Anybody has an idea how to fix it?

My XFree86 Config says:

Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "PS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "Emulate3Buttons"
Option "Emulate3Timeout" "50"

My PC:
Fujitsu Siemens Amilo A
1,4 Ghz Mobile Athlon XP

thanks for any help,
yayegg - a desperate
