As the original poster of this thread I feel compelled to provide some more information.
I am running FreeBSD 5.0 that I obtained through the FreeBSD Unleased book I purchased from Barnes & Noble. Here is a numerated list of more: 1. Sony VAIO PCG-GRX550 laptop. 2. 40gb hard drive 3. 512mb RAM. 4. The video adapter is a Mobility Raadeon 7500 with 32mb of video memory. When I boot up FreeBSD and do ls -al on the /dev directory I do have busmouse or psm0 in the directory. Someone in an earlier reply to my post said this means that I do not have psm0 support in my kernel. Therefore, I am in the process of researching building a custom kernel that will include support for the PS/2 mouse. I must admit that I am rather surprised that an advanced OS such as FreeBSD does not include support for PS/2 in its generic configuration.

I am not the original poster, by the way, though I would be interested in the answer as well.
