Hopefully someone will have a better suggestion than this, but...

I also have a laptop with an internal ps/2.  It works fine under 3-STABLE
and 4-CURRENT, but I've had it working under XWindows since I got the
laptop, 2.2.6-R, I believe (perhaps 2.2.7-R).  If support is the problem,
then upgrading to 2.2.8 would solve the problem (if you want to stick on
the 2.x branch).

If there's another problem, more details about it would help.  How did you
try to setup the mouse?  (I use always sysinstall to get /dev/psm0 working.)
