sounds to me like /dev/mouse doesn't point to your mouse device. this
is a very common problem when running X -configure

if your mouse is PS/2 do:

cd /dev
ln -s psaux mouse

if it's something else..well then you may need another driver(s) for
USB or something before starting X, I think the default usb mouse
device in debian 3.0 is /dev/input/mice or something
