Section "InputDevice"

    Identifier                  "Mouse1"
    Driver                      "mouse"
    Option "Protocol"           "Auto"
    Option "Device"             "/dev/sysmouse"


in XF86Config really should do it for you, if not, post what you've got,
and check /var/log/XFree86.0.log for any clues to what the specific
problem may be.
