X - no mouse/pointer

I got a new mother board (ASUS M2NBP) and was eager to get Fedora 8
x64 working on it ... the install went great but ....

During the boot up process I have a mouse, works great.  However, when
X starts the mouse goes away.

Here is my xorg.conf file (I had to add the mouse configuration lines):

# Xorg configuration created by system-config-display

Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier     "single head configuration"
        Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
        InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"             # I added this line
        InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Keyboard0"
        Driver      "kbd"
        Option      "XkbModel" "pc105"
        Option      "XkbLayout" "us+inet"

Section "InputDevice"            # I added this section

    # generated from default
        Identifier  "Mouse0"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option      "Protocol" "auto"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
        Option      "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
        Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Videocard0"
        Driver      "nv"

Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Videocard0"
        DefaultDepth     24
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth     24
############### end of xorg.file #############

It seems as though the X configuration tool is not seeing the mouse.
When I switch to run level 4 the console mouse works as expected.    I
get the same results with a PS2 mouse.  I've googled and googled but
after several hours I have found nothing that will help.   I am hoping
someone on this list can point me in the right direction.

Here is my :0.log file:
