I also had problems with my KVM switch and mouse when I initially moved to
2.6, but adding this kernel boot parameter fixed it, meybe it will help
you as well : psmouse.proto=imps

My mouse was jumping all over the screen, clicking buttons at random, but
since I added
to my lilo.conf everything has been working perfectly with every 2.6
kernel I've tried.

My mouse is a "Logitec MouseMan Wheel" (USB mouse, but connected to the
KVM with a USB->PS/2 adapter), my KVM switch is an old 8port thing that I
unfortunately don't know the name/brand of since I got it used and the
label with that info on it is gone.

Hope that helps you :)
