Figuring out USB device locations

From: James Lamanna

Is there an easy way to find out what /dev entries usb devices get mapped to from userspace? Specifically mice since the /dev location isn't even printed in dmesg.
I have a program that needs to open each mouse independently so /dev/input/mice isn't an option.

I'm also on a 2.4 kernel so sysfs/udev is not available.
