"sysinstall says, you are not root user, so go away.. "

Did you login as root or use the standard autologin user? I don't know if this user is UID 0. To be sure, use su. Should not be a problem then.

% su -
...
# /stand/sysinstall

Otherwise, try the "old fashioned" method to test:

# moused -d -f -p /dev/cuaa0 -t auto

Use /dev/psm0 for a PS/2 mouse or /dev/ums0 for an USB mouse. Be sure to specify the correct mouse type (see man moused for a list). By the way, USB mice should be autodetected and automatically setup via usbd.

"Works fine on every other FreeBSD distribution- PC-BSD and DesktopBSD."

Really strange... diffed the /etc/rc.confs?
