Default netbsd 5 xorg no mouse[Solved]

I have done a complete installation (all sets) of netbsd 5 64 bit on my laptop. I have installed gnome on my laptop using the pkgsrc gnome meta pkg. Then I installed modular xorg using this wiki http://wiki.netbsd.se/How_to_install_modular_Xorg. I then create a config file for X using the command.
X -configure
and moved the config file to /etc/X11/. I also added dbus, hal and gdm to rc.conf. When i rebooted gdm didn't start so I removed xorg.conf and reboot, this time gdm started but mouse wasn't working . So I edited the xorg.conf and changed the mouse device entry to /dev/wsmouse and protocol to wsmouse and rebooted but gdm didn't start this time. So please help me figure out how to set xorg conf properly. I am unable to add dumps of my config files as I am using fedora live cd to write this post.

When I added wsmoused to rc.conf, the mouse is working in the console but not in xorg.
