Make sure that you have HID Input support in your kernel, otherwise,
there won't be a driver for the mouse. If you intend on hotplugging the
mouse, make sure you have hotplug installed as well. Once you have HID
Input support and hotplug, plugging in the mouse should result in an
extra /dev/input/mouseX device. If you don't want to have to select
between the two, you can specify /dev/input/mice as your input device
which should take input from all mouse devices.

Take a look at this for the "IN from bad port" message:
