He could have a bus mouse, which would use the mse0 driver.  I used that
for a while when I had an ATI Mach8 and had no troubles.

Try compiling the kernel with the mse0 driver installed.  Do your
MAKEDEV, if necessary, and symlink /dev/mse0 to /dev/mouse.  Then make
sure your /etc/XF86Config says the mouse device is /dev/mouse.  You
should then be ready to rock.  There are some other configuration things
you can do with a mouse, but they aren't usually necessary.
