Did you rtfm (usb howto)?
I suspect that you don't have one of the neccessary modules loaded.
I got these modules loaded for my usb mouse:
hid                    13192   0  (autoclean) (unused)
mousedev                3928   1  (autoclean)
input                   3456   0  (autoclean) [hid mousedev]
usb-uhci               22604   0  (autoclean) (unused)
usbcore                58368   1  (autoclean) [hid printer usb-uhci]

and my (custom) usbmouse device file is:
crw-r--r--    1 root     root      13,  32 Apr 24  2002 /dev/usbmouse

Also look at /proc/bus/usb/ and /proc/devices to see if input/usb related
stuff is there.
