I have heard of this PS/2 mouse and MES-N problem before. What kind of mouse are you using? I have had trouble with the Logitech mice on a MES-N with a NE2000 card. When I changed to a Kensington model 19410 3-button mouse, it works fine. I have a MES-N box now with a SMC-1211TX card and it works fine with the Kensington. Somewhere around here I have a Logitech, if I can find it, I'll give it a try and see if it boots.
