I've got one of the sun mice that plugs into a type 6 keyboard (not
sure if that's a crossbow mouse?) and after putting the following into
rc.conf and restarting moused it worked:


The relevant section from xorg.conf is:

Section "InputDevice"

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