So, you tried the mouse on all usb ports, you tried different mouses and this did not work. You also say the keyboard doesn't work?

This is either a software problem or a hardware problem. Easiest way to find out is that you boot the G5 from another install or the installation DVD and check is the mouse and keyboard work. If they work you have a software problem, step one would be to install the latest combo updater and if that does not work do a reinstall.

If however the mouse and keyboard does not work it's probably a hardware problem and you will have to have a apple support technician look at it.
