When installing fisher the installer wont find the usb mouse. It doesn't 
even work when I tell the installer that I have an usb mouse.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use an usb mouse.

Actual Results:  No mouse support in the installer. when the programs are 
installed upon reboot the mouse is back

Expected Results:  The mouse should work atleast after I tell the 
installer that I have a generic 3 button usb mouse.

The mouse used is a Microsoft IntelliMouse Explorer and the 
motherboard/chipset is i810 based.

We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.

There were several known issues with USB mouse detection in Fisher which are
fixed now.
