have you tried this:

My usual configuration steps are:

1)  XFree86 -configure
2)  edit the to put in the mouse information
      (i use device "/dev/psm0" and type "auto")
3)  Try it again:
      XFree86 -xf86config
4)  repeat until it works
5)  post specific excerpts from /var/log/XFree86.0.log and/ or if you have problems
