/dev/psaux is the same as /dev/input/mice with 2.6 kernels, but of
course it still requires the device node to actually exist, which
doesn't seem the case here. There should be plenty of documentation on
how to configure the mouse properly, and in the meantime you could try
starting the X server with -allowMouseOpenFail to ignore a broken mouse

Unfortunately though, it doesn't look like the video driver calls the
video BIOS to initialize the graphics card, so I'm afraid it still won't
work. You may need to try newer X.org releases or hack the driver.
