Mouse doesn't work

 When I boot X-Windows my mouse doesn't work. I have a microsoft compatible 2-button mouse, on the 1st port which is as far as my setup tells me is /dev/ttys0 on linux.
In the X-Windows I've selected a microsoft compatible 2 button mouse at /dev/ttys0, I've setup my mouse in setup program on the same port, but everytime I boot x-windows I can't move it.

Please help me!!!

Thanks

cd /dev
ln -s /dev/cua0 mouse

Edit your XF86Config as follows:
Section "Pointer"
    Protocol    "Microsoft"
    Device      "/dev/mouse"
