Description of Problem:
Anaconda quits out very early if no mouse is installed. This from the debug

Probing for mouse type: Traceback (most recent calls last):
    File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 427, in ?
        mousehw.probe (frob = 1)
    File "/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/rhpl/mouse.py", line 191, in probe
        self.set("No mouse")
    File "/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/rhpl/mouse.py", line 229, in set
        (gpm, x11, dev, [can't read my own writing :-]) = self.mice[mouse]
    KeyError: No mouse
install exited abnormally

(null) was given the CD boot option "linux text". I repeated this twice with the
same results. The third time, I plugged in a USB mouse and the install proceeded
as expected.
