BLFS mouse problem

Hi there. I'm having tons of trouble with Xorg6.8.2 in BLFS-6.0 When I
do Xorg -configure, I am told that Xorg is unable to detect my mouse.
Also, I loaded an nvidia driver last week, and although I recompiled my
kernel since, Xorg still says that it can't load the NVIDIA module, so
is there a way I can get rid of this module altogether. On the same
note, I'm trying to make a liveCD, so would I actually need the nvidia
module to be able to detact all cards? Below is a small section of my
xorg.conf file. Every time I run Xorg -configure, the updated file has
the mouse option changed back to /dev/mouse even though I tried to set
it to numerous other things. When I ran Xorg -allowMouseOpenFail, I got
a X screen and my mouse worked, but I was basically stuck there with NO
other functionality??? Thanks in advance

Here's the xorg.conf

Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier  "Mouse0"
	Driver      "mouse"
	Option	    "Protocol" "auto"
	Option	    "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
