PS/2 mouse problems

I have an Asus P5A motherboard and I'm
running Linux-2.4.5, custom compiled.

I have a problem using my PS/2 mouse port.
I have enabled PS/2 mouse support in
the kernel. I get this message
when the computer boots up:
 Starting kswapd v1.8
 Detected PS/2 Mouse Port.   <---
 pty: 256 Unix98 ptys configured
However when I try to use the mouse
with gpm or X, it just doesn't work!
(I've tried protocols, PS/2 and microsoft).
I've noticed that /proc/interrupts
does not contain a line for interrupt
12, which is supposed to be reserved for
PS/2. I think this could be a symptom
of something, but I don't know what.

I've tried disabling and enabling
PS/2 support from the BIOS, but neither
option has any effect.

If anyone could shed some light on this
situation or offer any advice, they'd
be more then welcome.

Thanks in advance.
