Nebie -SS2 and mouse

Hello, and thanks for taking a minute to read and respond. I am new to
the Sun (Sparcstation) platform, but am interested in learning and using

I have Debian installed and running fine as a console. I cannot get gpm
to work, and am therefore afraid to even try to get X running. BTW, is
there an X setup script somewhere? As far as the install is concerned,
the mouse is at /dev/mouse. I am using a type 5 keyboard and a clone
Fujitsu mechanical type 5 mouse on a Sparcstation2. When I run
gpmconfig, it suggests /dev/rtc which also does not work. I have noticed
there is a small port underneath the keyboard with a row of dip
switches, would this be a likely culprit for my lack of mouse? The
following is a part of dmesg:

Sun TYPE 5 keyboard detected without keyclick
Sun Mouse-Systems mouse driver version 1.00

Thanks for your time and help.
