You can check usb device connectivity with the lsusb command. For gentoo, it's in the "usbutils" package. Or you can check dmesg for usb connections and possible errors.

More likely your /etc/X11/XF86Config needs help. Can you paste the section(s) starting with "Section "InputDevice""?
Heh. Because the network card is not working under SuSE on this computer either, I'm going to transcribe this by hand:

Section "InputDevice"
Driver "mouse"
Identifer "Mouse[1]"
Option "AutoSoft" "on"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option "Name" "Autodetection"
Option "Protocol" "AUTO"
Option "Vendor" "Sysp"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

Last night I sat down and started trying to install SuSE Pro 9.1 on my
computer. I encoutered a weird issue with my USB cordless mouse, and I
don't know if it's an issue with the 2.6 kernel or with SuSE itself.

During the initial stages of the installation, the mouse was detected
normally and worked just fine. However, once the base system was
installed, and I rebooted the computer to complete the installation
process, the mouse was no longer detected or usable, and I ended up having
to use the keyboard to complete the installation.

Even after the installation was complete, the mouse was unavailable. I
tried using YaST to update the mouse configuration, but that didn't work;
I even tried selecting every single mouse model in the list, but none
worked. I viewed the system logs, but can't see anything that seems to be
a problem.

This same mouse works fine on the same computer under Fedora Core 1 and
earlier versions of Red Hat, and there are no other USB devices connected
to the computer.

Anyone have any ideas?
