I had a similar problem/solution with a PS/2 mouse on an AMD-K6.  Then I
had an Acer RTL-8139 NIC that worked fine in linux and would not receive
in Winder's on the same box.  I eventually found a VIA 4-in-1 BIOS
upgrade that fixed both the NIC and the PS/2 port induced problems.

+ try a BIOS update (which may not be necessary.  I have an extra serial
mouse or two myself.)
