need to see your autoexec.bat, autoexec.dos, config.sys, and config.dos files to check your configuration. is the mouse plugged into a p/s 2 port or comm port? comm1 or 2? what port is your modem on?

Are you trying to use the mouse in a dos box or plain dos?

What do you mean with 'installed properly'?

What DOS based program(s) are you running?  Do you "Shut Down to DOS" to use them?

I imagine the dos mouse driver may be absent from the config.sys file.
Normally it reads device=c:\mouse.sys or similar. Sometimes additional paramaters are specified  such as the port. A DOS program can also be used to activate the mouse by simply running it from the dos prompt.
Try to locate the disks and documentation to confirm this.
More details relating to how you installed it and what the config and autoexec files look like.
Sometimes a small diagnostics program is available to ensure that the port speed is set up right.
Hope this helps.
