configuring x w/ usb mouse problems

I'm trying to configure X using xf86config, and I have a usb optical mouse I want to use. Unfortunately, when prompted to specify where my modem is in /dev, I don't know. /dev/mouse doesn't work, so is there a way I can check what is connected to my /dev/usb/ devices?

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
