perhaps split it into sabuse and xabuse packages? coz when it comes to
gamez, I really do prefer the console.  I waited till squake came out to
install quake on my linux box f'rinstance.  Not all of us have pentiums =)

Ok.  I will compile the 2.0.0 kernel and see if it works with that.  But
as far as reinstalling redhat.... I no longer have the cdrom.  I only have
the latest redhat from infomagic.  And Ive got my system so upgraded under
debian, I dread reinstalling another distro just to check this.

Have you gotten any reply to them?  It seems strange that they, at the
very least, havent compiled abuse to use elf libs.  Maybe a recompile is
all thats needed to fix the mouse problem, eh?

Which would be a shame =(  Hope we can get it fixed.  It really gives me
power to be able to show my hardcore gamer buddies that Linux has cool
games too.  I already got a couple of them interested in installing it.
