Can you post your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file?  .... or at least have a
look at the Keyboard/Mouse entries.  Mine look like this:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Generic Keyboard"
        Driver          "keyboard"
        Option          "CoreKeyboard"
        Option          "XkbRules" 		"xfree86"
        Option          "XkbModel" 		"pc105"
	Option 		"XkbLayout"     	"gb"

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier 	"Configured Mouse"
        Driver		"mouse"
        Option 		"CorePointer"
	Option 		"Device" 		"/dev/gpmdata" 
	Option 		"Protocol" 		"IntelliMouse" 
	Option 		"Emulate3Buttons" 	"true" 
	Option 		"ZAxisMapping" 		"4 5"
