Description of problem:
During the install of FC3T2 the probe for mouse type returned a value
of Generic - 3 button mouse (PS/2).  I don't have a PS/2 mouse.  I
have a Microsoft Intellimouse (USB).  This mouse has the two extra
buttons on the side usually for moving forward or back a page in a
brower.  The two side buttons don't work like they should.  The back
button goes to a random page I visited, and the forward button brings
up the same menu as a right click.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  install FC3T2 with a USB mouse

Actual Results:  The mouse works, but why does the installer think I
have a PS/2 mouse?

Expected Results:  It should have returned a value of Microsoft
Intellimouse (USB)

Unfortunately, this is what the 2.6 kernel thinks all mice are (and it
matters little as they all go through the input layer).
