It should default to Yes maybe.  The thing is that USB mice are automagically
handled by usbd and don't need configuring, only non-USB mice need handling. 
Jordan tried to fix the wording and instead broke the question horribly.  (I
think it may still be broken in stable.)  Basically, if the user has a USB
mouse they don't need to do anything, but if they have a non-USB mice, they
need to run the moused setup.  You could change the question to be something
like "Do you have a serial or PS/2 mouse connected...?" maybe.
