Re: Simple mouse question....
Which X config section? There are a number of different utilities,
among them xconfigurator (command line), XF86Setup (graphical), and
others. Don't sweat it, you can always change the setting later.
If you've got a mouse with a small, round, 9-pin connector, you've got a
PS/2 mouse. If it's got a wheel in between the two buttons, it's
probably a Microsoft IntelliMouse (the labling should make this clear).
Both plug in to the PS/2 port.
The PS/2 setting should work with both types. An IntelliMouse will be
somewhat more functional if used with teh IntelliMouse setting.
