Mouse not working in XFree86 (FreeBSD 4.0)

I have tried setting Protocol to "SysMouse" and Device to
"/Dev/sysmouse" in /etc/XF86Config and this seems
to have done the trick. Not sure why, as I didn't want
to have mouse use in the text-only areas (?).
But now I've got it.

Subject: Mouse not working in XFree86
I have just attempted to set up Xfree86 and seem to have it functioning
(menus work via the keyboard, for instance) but... my mouse doesn't respond.
It's a 2-button + wheel MS mouse (Intellimouse) into serial Port 1, which I have
now called /dev/ttyd1 (when I had /dev/ttyd0 Xfree86 refused to run at all,
with a port in use error message).
Can anyone suggest how I might debug this problem?
