Have you checked what ports are being found during booting?
Either boot without the 'quiet' option or run dmesg in a terminal once booted. As your mouse isn't working you'll need to exit X with ctrl+alt+backspace, or boot to text mode (dsl 2 boot code).
You will see somewhere in the list of messages, whichever way you do it, something like:
ttyS00 at 0x03f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
There may be more than one line like this if there are more ports on the system. Use the port numbers (e.g. ttyS00) in xsetup.
