Linux on HP Pavilion (& DOS)

Does anyone have any information about using the cordless mouse that came with my above PC in Linux. I've booted from a Knoppix LiveCD, just to get a feel for Linux, but the mouse is as dead as a dodo, although the messages tell me that it's recognized.

FWIW, DOS recognizes the mouse, but only for vertical movements at the left edge of the screen, so anu help about that would also be appreciated...

use a PS/2 mouse, that will be detected more easily.

I hope this helps
