With kernel 2.4.x, xorg.conf should have something like:
==============
Section "InputDevice"
   Identifier  "Mouse0"
   Driver      "mouse"
   Option      "Protocol" "MouseSystems"
   Option      "Device" "/dev/sunmouse"
   Option        "Emulate3Buttons"       "false"
EndSection
==============

With kernel 2.6.x, this:
=============
Section "InputDevice"
   Identifier  "Mouse0"
   Driver      "mouse"
   Option      "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
   Option      "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
   Option        "Emulate3Buttons"       "false"
EndSection
==============

At least, those're what I'm using on my systems.

Beyond that, I don't know.  What does Xorg.0.log say about your mouse?
And what does "jumps all over the place" mean?  And what does your
xorg.conf (Or XFree...) say about your mouse?
