With XFree86 3.3 (Woody, 2.4.17 custom kernel) once I got USB working
in my kernel and everything, all I needed in XF86Config was
DeviceName "USB Mouse"
to get my USB wheel mouse (a logitech) working. I'm not sure about
what kind of USB support is available in the 2.x kernels on potato
though. See http://www.linux-usb.org for information on things you
might have to do.....
