Comment out all four of the lines:
pms* at pckbc? # PS/2 mouse for wsmouse
pmsi* at pckbc? # PS/2 "Intelli"mouse for wsmouse
wsmouse* at pms? mux 0
wsmouse* at pmsi? mux 0
and uncomment the line:
#opms* at pckbc? # backwards compatible PS/2 mouse
This will enable the pre-wscons /dev/pms0 PS/2 mouse driver which will look
like the "BusMouse" protocol to the X server (not the "PS/2" protocol, do
note!). This does not conflict with wscons controlling the display.
