Thank you for the constructive advices.
I have been octal dumping all the /dev/wsmouse* and /dev/tty* devices
with a PS/2 mouse and a serial mouse connected and none of the devices
register any input. I guess that means the kernel does not support the
specific ports (which I believe are integrated on the mainboard).
(Needless to say that the ports work alright when I boot the machine
in WinXP or Linux, which also happens to be installed)
I will see if I can get my hand on a USB mouse tomorrow and check its
Otherwise I guess I'll have to build a custom kernel for my system?
The problem I'm facing here is I'm left in the dark with respect to
what to include to get the kernel to recognize the ports.
I better have a look at the kernel source.
