    <pre wrap="">I did something kind of stupid, when I first installed Gentoo, I left my

to make it work? I've emerged synaptics, but that hasn't help, so there 
must be something else.  Should I rebuild my xorg.conf file?

  <pre wrap=""><!---->This isn't a gentoo-amd64 question, but my guess is that your xorg.conf
points to the usb mouse. The synaptics probably comes up as a normal
psaux mouse. Simply adding another mouse device section should do it.
Google should be able to find this for you. ("synaptics device section")
