Interesting....  My copies of those two files appear to be identical to
yours, and the mouse still didn't work on my machine.  Larry's copy of
/etc/gpm.conf had device=/dev/mouse instead of /dev/ttyS0, but is
otherwise the same.  I'm running XF86 3.3 on a Matrox Millenium, and
Larry has XF86 3.3.1 on a Matrox Millenium II.  I would have suspected
the X installation, since we didn't put a full 3.3.1 on, only the
Millenium server and the rest is 3.3, but gpm doesn't work, either.  Not
only that, but my Logitech Mouseman works fine on both systems, with no
software changes at all.  ?!

Larry asked me yesterday about recommendations for a different kind of
mouse, so I think he's going to be replacing the mouse shortly.  

Thanks again for your help,
