Well, it's probably a bit late by now, but check /etc/X11/XF86.conf for
Section "InputDevice" where it says Identifier "Mouse", and change
the Device to /dev/input/mice .

This then probably won't work with 2.4: you might want a bit of
scripting to choose the "right" XF86.conf at boot depending on the
kernel version.
