 The Logitech Trackball (Marble) is really not very fast under X.
 But I think it has nothing to do with the PS/2 port.
 You can chaneg the mouse-speed and many other things with the xset program.
 Take a look at man xset, parameter "m".
 For the first step you can try "xset m 5" or "xset m 6".
 This should fast enough.
 You can find xset in the xbase Package, so you should have it.
------------------------------  man xset -------------
        m       The  m  option controls the mouse parameters.  The
               parameters for the mouse  are  `acceleration'  and
               `threshold'.  The acceleration can be specified as
               an integer, or as a simple fraction.

  You don't need it, see above.

   A good idea.

Hope it helps.
