Go into the BIOS, search for the PS/2 mouse setting and switch from "Auto"
to "Enabled". If your BIOS has a menu to reserve IRQs for ISA go there
and reserver IRQ 12.

PS/2 connectors are *not* hot-plugable. Doing things like this you might
burn your motherboard.

The easiest way to fix this problem is to use an USB mouse. This
saves you an interrupt, too.

[BTW: I think this thread belongs to "port-i386".]
