I have no problems with my mouse on IRQ 12.  Do you actually have PS/2
mouse support compiled into your kernel?  In my 2.4.x kernel
configuration, it's under Character Devices/Mice.  Also, check to make
sure that your mouse is plugged in well.  It sounds stupid, but I've
spent hours before figuring out that piece of hardware just wasn't
plugged in.

Good luck,
