It depends on the mouse. If it's a PS/2 mouse, then call it a PS/2
mouse. The port to use is /dev/psaux, but you can also make a symlink
from that to /dev/mouse. Does it have three buttons? If not, then you
probably want to emulate the three buttons so when you chord the two,
you get MOUSE3.

The Matrox will server you well. The standard SVGA server will do it,
and selecting chipsets is optional. The chipset for that board is
MGA2064W. I have one as well.

You got that right. :) The AS200 4/233 is a nice system, and is a lot
easier to get running now that there are a few more of them in
