If the mouse is on COM2 (windows), the mouse device should be
/dev/ttyS1, and I'm guessing that driver to be used should be the
"Microsoft" driver like so:

Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier	"Configured Mouse"
	Driver		"mouse"
	Option		"CorePointer"
	Option		"Device"		"/dev/ttyS0"
	Option		"Protocol"		"Microsoft"

I may be wrong about the driver, since I havent used a serial mouse in a
long time. You could give it a whirl report back if it doesnt work.
