I'm running i386 1.5.1 with a USB keyboard and mouse. I don't think I had to 
do anything special. Here is a portion of my XF86Config:

Section "Keyboard"
   Protocol        "Standard"
   AutoRepeat      500 30
   LeftAlt         Meta
   RightAlt        Meta
   ScrollLock      Compose
   RightCtl        Control
   XkbKeycodes     "xfree86"
   XkbTypes        "default"
   XkbCompat       "default"
   XkbSymbols      "us(pc101)"
   XkbGeometry     "pc"
   XkbRules        "xfree86"
   XkbModel        "pc101"
   XkbLayout       "us"
Section "Pointer"
   Protocol        "wsmouse"
   Device          "/dev/wsmouse0"
   BaudRate        1200
   Emulate3Timeout 50
   Resolution      100
