Toshiba laptop Suse 9. mouse/eraser issue

I installed Suse 9.0 on my toshiba 4600.

All was good.

Last night I plugged my USB mouse into the laptop, it saw it and asked if I wanted to configure it. The mouse worked fine.

Now I am at work and I dont have the mouse with me and the "eraser" pointer is not working. Did using the mouse remove the "eraser" driver, and if so how do I get it back? I cant seem to do very much without the "eraser" working.

1) Do a "Control-Alt-F2" and open up another tty.
2) Login as root.
3) Run yast, get rid of the offending mouse.
4) Do a "Control-Alt-F7" to get back into your GUI.
5) Don't forget to logoff as root in the tty.
