What problems in specific are you having with moused?  Do you have any
error messages, or specific output from dmesg?  If you give a little
more info the list will better be able to help you.  In the mean time,
for your ps/2 mouse, do you have a couple lines in /etc/rc.conf that
look like this:

moused_flags="-p /dev/psm0 -t ps/2"

If moused is working, you should see the mouse even on the console.
If you don't, and moused if running, then try issuing the following

vidcontrol -m on

gpg --keyserver --recv-keys D8527E49
