Actually, I don't think that they keyboard has a device entry in /dev.  
/dev/psaux should be your mouse port.  Since I'm not in linux right now, i 
can't check, but I'm almost positive that's how it should be.

If you do an ls -l on /dev/mouse, it should be pointing to /dev/psaux.  (It's 
been a while since I've used Mandrake, so I can't remember for sure.)
