Mouse under X

I installed the Debian 2.0 Hamm distribution yesterday on an old i386. I
thought I got the brand new stable version, but I encoutered problems with
the X server installation : not all the required files or directories were
correctly installed, so I had to complete by hand. Now it seems almost
correct, except that I can't configure properly the mouse. It is a 2
buttons Logitech. 

If /etc/XF86Config pointer section contains :
	Protocol  "Logitech"
	Device "/dev/mouse"
	Baud rate 1200
then I got the error :
Fatal server error
Cannot open mouse (No such file or directory)
when I do startx, and the server doesn't start. I've noticed that I don't
have /dev/mouse, so in the XF86Config file I put "/dev/smouse", which
exists. In that case, I get the error :
Cannot open mouse (Operation not supported by device)

I also get these messages after the first one :
_X11TransSocketUNIXConnect: Can't connect: errno = 111
giving up.
xinit: Connection refused (errno 111): unable to connect to X server
xini: No such process (errno 3): Server error.
Is it related to the mouse problem ?
Can someone help me please ?
