PS/2 mouse question on Debian-i386

Debian mouse experts:

I have a new Logitech marble trackball with PS/2 connector.  I would
like to replace my serial port mouse on my Debian Linux machine.  I
have a PS/2-6 pin - 2 - serial-9 pin mouse adapter from a local
computer store.  However, simply plugging that in with the PS/2 mouse
did not work.

Do I need to compile in PS/2 mouse in the kernel?  What, then use the
serial port?  I'm not sure about this.  Anyone else tried this?
I couldn't find this topic in the HOWTOs.
