Exclamation Mouse Trouble. Caught Signal 4 Server Aborting

I'm Using Debian Linux.
And I Got So Far That I Got a Login Promt..

In here I can choose ;

My Mouse Works In All Thoose Options Except Under The DEFAULT option, where i got this error message while loading the pheriphals...-->

(**)Configured Mouse: Protocol: "PS/2"
(**)Configured Mouse: Core Pointer
(==)Configured Mouse: Buttons 3
(**)Generic Mouse: Protocol: "ImPS/2"
(**)Generic Mouse: always reports core events
(EE)xf86OPenSerial: Cannot open device /dev/input/mice
No Such Device
(EE) Generic Mouse: cannot open device
(EE) PreInit failed for input device
(II)XINPUT: Adding extended input device "Configured Mouse" (type: MOUSE)

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 4. Server aborting

That's looks to me that debian are trying to use 2 mouses.. Why??
Anyone got any idea to solve this stupied error???

Ok, change your xf86config file (as root). The section that says the input device is /dev/input/mice, change /dev/input/mice to /dev/psaux.
