logitech mouses in fedora 4

I'm having trouble getting one certain mouse to function in fedora 4.
Its a logitech with the big red ballon the side and has the usb connection.
The mouse operates on a battery.
When I try to use this mouse it doesn't work.
The battery is fine so is the mouse tested it against my win 98 box.

Has anyone experience in dealing with this type of mouse in linux?

I have the same mouse and in my XF86Config or in my XOrg config I added the following lines to make it work then did a ctrl+alt+backspace to make it come up.
I added this under the core pointers section:
Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mse"
Driver "mouse"
Option "SendCoreEvents" "true"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "true"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
And I added this to the ServerLayout section:
InputDevice "Mse"

You may have to change:
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
To be where your mouse is located, you can test to see if it is the correct place by doing:
cat /dev/input/mice
Then moving the mouse.
