There are problems with write support on fatfs.  Please use it
read-only.  I think that should work.

You have to use the console client.  It has mouse support through GNU
Mach.  USB mouses are not supported, but serial and PS/2 mouses are.
For example for PS/2 mouses:

console -d vga -d pc_kbd -d pc_mouse /dev/vcs

After that you can use programs on the console that use the mouse, for
example mc using `mc -x'.
