As root you could run sysinstall from the command line and enter the post install configuration option. You can reconfigure your ps/2 mouse from there by selecting the mouse port and protocol and testing until you get it working.
I checked the rc.conf file, both were selected as YES.
I dont think I am knowledgeable enough to use sysinstall.
I will just buy a usb mouse.
Thanks for your reply.
