Description of problem:
During Install of fc4, hardware probe could not find Microsoft optical IntelliMouse.

into same port was found during the install and identified as generic
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Tried install 3 times with Optical IntelliMouse with same result - mouse not found.
2. Switching mouse to 3-button microsoft PS/2 mouse worked.
Actual Results: Mouse not found using optical USB Microsoft IntelliMouse with PS/2 adapter.
This same mouse was working fine just before the fc4 install using fc3.

What does /proc/bus/input/devices look like with the mouse that it didn't find?
I swapped hard drives so as not to mess up my install. I swapped the mouse back
to the offending mouse. On three successive install attempts, the mouse that
wasn't recognized the other day was recognized all three times. Close Bug.
