(Replying with a little delay...)
Thnx for your precious help, now it works:)
So i did:

in XF86Config-4 the mouse device was:
/dev/psaux (working fine with 2.4)
i changed it to
and it worked fine with kernel 2.6

Isn't it a kind of bug? (I think i modified XF86config-4 manually, but
if I didn't would XF66Config be modified by Kernel installation?

I think ti would be nice if the mouse were accessd throught a link,
that depending on what kernel version is running points to the right
