Default evdev usage in xorg.conf?

I just got my new toy, a logitech denovo mini keyboard device.

When I plug in the little usb receiver that came with it,
the keyboard part works fine, but I get no mouse action
from the mouse part (current xorg.conf file points at
/dev/input/mice, which works great for my usb trackball).

I see these new devices in /proc/bus/input/devices after
adding the denovo mini:

I: Bus=0003 Vendor=046d Product=c71e Version=0111
N: Name="Logitech Logitech BT Mini-Receiver"
P: Phys=usb-0000:00:02.0-8.2/input0
S: Sysfs=/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/usb2/2-8/2-8.2/2-8.2:1.0/input/input9
U: Uniq=000761AEE883
H: Handlers=kbd event9
B: EV=120013
B: KEY=1000000000007 ff800000000007ff febeffdfffefffff fffffffffffffffe

S: Sysfs=/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/usb2/2-8/2-8.3/2-8.3:1.0/input/input10

B: REL=7cf
B: ABS=100000000
B: MSC=10

That leads me to suspect that perhaps switching to evdev would allow
me to get mouse input from this thing, but my only experience with
configuring an evdev device was blindly getting usb tablet mode to
work in a virtual machine once, and I just copied some stuff I didn't
understand for that :-).

Any good info on using evdev in fedora 8 around anywhere? I don't
want to break my existing mouse, but it would be nice if I could
get the denovo mini working as well.
