solved now...? seems as I solved it myself:

- for the graphics 480x640: made the system
booting without splashscreen - put the option "vga=normal"
into grubs menu.lst (into the "kernel" line of xubuntu).

- for the mouse: changed it from ps2 to usb (mouse is
optical wheelmouse with usb and a ps2 adapter)

hope it's ok now.
