Most if not all ps2 IMps2 mice will be auto recognized.
I haven't had any problems in most major linux distros with ps2, usb & wireless mice and keyboards. They all get recognized, but this is where the desktop/live cd comes in handy-just pop it in your drive and see.

If its a regular usb or ps2 mouse or keyboard then you don't need any drivers.

If you keyboard has some special buttons for launching of applications, they may or may not work in Ubuntu. The same with the mouse, some specialized buttons may or may not work.

Having said that, there are ways to make them work but they are never guaranteed.
