Are you using the proper (gridded metal) sun optical mouse pad?  Sun
optical mice only work on the correct pads at the correct orientation,
and it differs for different versions.

Other than that, double check your gpm or X11 configurations.  2.6
kernals make it pretend to be a pc mouse, so require different
configurations than 2.4 kernels.

With Microsoft, failure is not an option.  It is a standard feature.
