This works for me.

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Mouse0"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option      "Protocol" "Busmouse"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/misc/sunmouse"
EndSection

And just in case you ask about the keyboard next I use this

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Keyboard0"
        Driver      "Keyboard"
        Option      "AutoRepeat" "500 30"
        Option      "XkbRules" "sun"
        Option      "XkbModel" "type5"
        Option      "XkbLayout" "us"
EndSection
