Sometime the mousepointer is jumping about the screen. I've selected Generic ->

This is probably a duplicate of Bug 80309 which is caused by service gpm. 
Please try the following:
* login as root
* service gpm stop
* chkconfig gpm off

If the mouse then works properly then gpm was the problem.  If so please close
this as DUPLICATE against 80309.
