Lightbulb Fedora 11 Mouse Problem

Hi all, i was just curious I had installed Fedora 11 on a machine here at work just to get to know the new system, I would have installed 10, however the disc is at home, and 11 was here
So anywho, Install went well, but when I get into it, the mouse (PS2 port) will not show up, I swapped it with another computer, and it runs, I signed onto the Windows xp Pro side of the pc, and it works there too...
And this may be a kinda noobish thing to do but I did access the terminal and typed
yum - update

and it had nothing.. so any ideas how to get the mouse to work?
much appreciate the help from everyone on this site.
