I have the exact same mouse working on 5.2.1
Here is the section from XF86Config
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/sysmouse"
Option "ZaxisMapping" "4 5"
In /etc/rc.conf I have the line
I am using the adapter that came with the mouse
and it is plugged into the PS2 port.
I find that the mouse is responsive and I really
like the feel. Now if only MS could do something
