Default Mouse not working with XFree86


I am having trouble getting the mouse to move under X - X starts, but the mouse doesn't move. The mouse cursor appears, but it doesn't move around like it should. The mouse is just a cheap HP PS/2 ball mouse with a scroll wheel. The server is XFree86 4.5.0. My mouse section for XF86Config is:

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Mouse1"
    Driver     "mouse"
    Option     "Protocol" "wsmouse"
    Option     "Device"   "/dev/wsmouse"
I suspect that the issue is with the protocol, but I'm not certain. I have tried PS/2, BusMouse, Auto, SysMouse, IMPS/2, Microsoft, IntelliMouse, Logitech, I probably tried one or two others that I can't recall.

X starts up (which won't happen if I change the device - I've tried), the mouse cursor appears, but it won't move.

Any suggestions?
