Install locks in Mouseconfig

I'm installing RedHat 6.0 from CD-Rom onto my K6-400/64MB RAM.  It all installs fine until I get to the mouse setup part.  I have a serial mouse, and when I try to set it up, the system freezes.  Even if I try to set it up by selecting "no mouse" from the mouse config menu, it still freezes inside the mouseconfig routine.  At least I'd like to complete the install and figure out the mouse once its in.  I keep wasting 35 minutes of install time (slow CD-ROM) each time it locks. CTRL-C aborts the whole install, not just the mouse part.  I'm stuck (and frustrated).  

Any ideas?

I'd be suspicious of a hardware resource conflict or some strange mouse that RH can't correctly is. What's the HW config and what kind of mouse?
