In /etc/XF86Config there is a section Pointer Devices
where you can specify the mouse protocol and
the device. For protocol you can use "Micosoft" with most
mice, even newer Logitech (if not MouseMan or the old rectangur
shaped three button Logitec mouse).

As a device you can choose "/dev/ttyd0" or "/dev/ttyd1" in
most standard cases.
