I once had the same problem

Have you tried running "modconf" under root? if not, try it and scrolll down the list to the usb part. Go in there and put a + in 3 related modules. "usb ohci" for sis, or "usb uhci" for VIA, and "usbcore" and finally "usbmouse". that oughtta do it. You may need to reconfigure xfree86 after this. Run "xf86config"
