good - mouse driver is present/loaded.

Can you try using /dev/psaux instead of /dev/input/mice ?
(ie hack your XF86Config-4 by hand)

Two sample XF86Config-4 files for b180 are available from:

e.g. from  XF86Config-4.ggg:
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Configured Mouse"
        Driver          "mouse"
        Option          "CorePointer"
        Option          "Device"                "/dev/psaux"
        Option          "Protocol"              "PS/2"
#       Option          "Emulate3Buttons"       "true"
        Option          "ZAxisMapping"          "4 5"

Read the FAQ and please ask more questions if that doesn't help:
