Don't you mean gpm, not gdm?
If you're not using gpm you may be running into the problem that X in woody
has a bug initialising PS/2 mice - it doesn't send a reset sequence to
the mouse, so the mouse doesn't listen to the init string that X sends
it. To get round this do
echo -ne '\377' > /dev/psaux
after you change the protocol in XF86Config and before you restart X.
Chances are you want ImPS/2 protocol.
