I think what Risto said is correct, but even easier - as far as I
understand X, which admittedly is not that much - it should be possible to
simply create /etc/X11/xorg.conf with only the sections relevant to your
mouse. That way you can use the goodness of X automagical configuration
everything, except the mouse where it's obviously not working.
