What sort of mouse do you have? I have a Logitech trackball connected 
to my PS/2 mouse port, and use the following in my XF86Config:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Mouse0"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option      "Protocol" "auto"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/psm0"
        Option      "Buttons" "5"
        Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

If your mouse is a PS/2 mouse, try using /dev/psm0 and auto protocol.
