That suggests that the mouse is connected to the serial port, not the
ps2 port. Sure enough it shouldn't work with /dev/psaux then.
Or did you mean to say that you tried it both with a ps2 mouse
and with a different serial mouse?
But to hang your whole machine? Perhaps it is just Xwindows that
freezes (maybe only for a minute or so).
There were some ps2 keyboard problems with kernels below 2.2.19
IIRC, so it would be worth a try to install a newer kernel than
the one that came with the installer (2.2.17?)

You probably mean that the kernel prints a message at boot time,
indicated that it found the ps2 port controller chip in your
system and that it activated a driver for it. Maybe there
is a bug in the kernel, maybe it is in your cabling. Impossible
to tell from your data.
