FYI, I just ran the Knoppmyth setup and it recognized my el cheapo PS/2 
mouse just fine - but this is old hat by now for most system installers. 
If you're using a PS/2 mouse you may have a hardware issue of some kind 
(broken, rare-incompatible)... PS/2 usually works. USB is actually better 
these days than it used to be but you are more likely to have trouble with 

It's true, though, I don't think I've seen anything yet in Knoppmyth that 
actually required the mouse. And that's on purpose.  :)
