Okay, so I installed Haiku on an IBM ThinkPad 600, it works perfectly, for mice.
The hardware itself is fine - Logitech mouse that I connected to the PS/2 port has the LED lit up, however, in Haiku it won't respond.
I tried downloading kb_mouse replacement from http://haikuware.com/directory/start-download/drivers/input-device/kb_mouse-replacement and putting that in system/add-ons/kernel/drivers/dev/input (all possible combinations of the files, also renamed ps2_hid and renamed kb_mouse-mouse to ps2_hid). All that it did was that on two re-boots the trackpoint and mouse buttons of the laptop worked.
The trackpoint is broken in my laptop, so I can't use it (makes cursor move chaotically), so it would be great if PS/2 mice worked.
The mouse itself is one of them cheap basic Logitech mice, with PS/2 and a scroller.
