mouse config

Subject: mouse config

I recently tried to install cs 1.2 on my pmac 7600 (booting using boot x).
the install seemed to go fine except when I got to the point where it
asked me about mouse config. Although the mouse was attached, and
functions perfectly in Mac OS, the YD installer didn't detect it. I tried
both a standard apple 1 buttn and a macally 2 button mouse (both adb
mice) on separate attempts with no sucess. I did manage to get linux
installed, but whenever any application (or I) access /dev/adbmouse or
/dev/mouse I get a device not found error, even though the file does exist
in /dev. What is even stranger is that the kernel does report the mouse
being attached during boot.

Anyone have any suggestions?
