Take a look at the list archives - this problem comes up fairly often.
For the mouse try device /dev/sunmouse and protocol busmouse.
For the keyboard here's what the relevant sections of my config looks like:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Keyboard0"
        Driver      "keyboard"
        Option          "CoreKeyboard"
        Option          "XkbRules"      "sun"
        Option          "XkbModel"      "type4"
        Option          "XkbLayout"     "us"

You'll have to change the options as relevant to your setup. Also,
if you still have keymap problems try the xkeycaps package.
