What do you mean it wouldn't "detect" your mouse?  It doesn't try.  (It
uses a program called mdetect to do so, if that program is present.)

mdetect is something we're using at Progeny and which I plan to package for
Debian once I've got it un-automade.

Yes, on my box at home:

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier  "Logitech Mouse"
    Driver      "mouse"
    Option      "Protocol"      "MouseManPlusPS/2"
    Option      "Device"        "/dev/psaux"
