Ahh...so the turbo mouse has to be plugged in at startup then? My XF86Setup
file is the same as yours right now.

...huh? :) Ya lost me. :) I've never played with xmodmap...<<checks the
manpage>> hmm...ok...a little more sense now. I'll probably have to do the
same with mine then. Kensington Turbo mouse, Model #64210?

I currently have access to one myself, but it's being used on another Mac.
If it's plugged in at startup, I _should_ concievably be able to swap it in
and out as I need it?

I had some troubles until I unchecked the "Use Video Driver" box in BootX
(having a bitch of a time getting yaboot to work on this thing, mostly
because it's an oldworld and OF isn't displayed on screen properly), now it
just works fine.
I realize that Xsetup is broken, but what I don't understand, is why it's
broken under Debian, and LinuxPPC/YellowDog seem to have gotten around this
problem? Is it due to GPL issues?
Thanks for the help...this might work yet. :)
