Hi Mattia, hi all,
it actually _is_ a bios problem. If I deactivate "USB BIOS 
Support" (no "USB legacy support" in my BIOS as mentioned in the 
tread) I can leave the mouse plugged in during boot. But then I 
cannot use the mouse in the BIOS. The problem was that the BIOS 
"help" only said sth about deactivating boot from USB diskette/CDROM. 

My configuration for the archive:
- Disable "USB BIOS Support"
- psmouse compiled in the kernel (2.6.4)
- uhci/ehci compiled as module
- no hotplug (as it is started after init it should not matter if it 
runs - at that point psmouse knows about the touchpad)

Thanks to all for helping!
