I am using a Logitech Mouseman Wheel with 7.1 right now.  It works with
both serial and ps/2.  Your configuration must be wrong.  Please reconfigure
your mouse in /etc/X11/XF86Config-4.  It should read something like:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Mouse0"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/mouse"
        Option      "Protocol" "IntelliMouse"
        Option      "Emulate3Buttons" "off"
        Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

There are other configurations that work as well however.  Read the XFree86
mouse manpage for configuration information.

man -a 4 mouse
