	I didn't know that Moused was going to be included.  I asked about 
use of the mouse in text mode a while back, but unfortunately, it wasn't 
in the pipeline yet.  I've had it set up for PS2 in FreeBSD before.  You 
could do it via command line or in rc.conf to enable it at boot.  I'm 
also going to upgrade once this feature has been added, as I also have a 
PS2 mouse, and would like to get around using X until my onboard 
graphics chip is better supported.
