Thanks to all for the helpful hints and the patience in helping me. The one line in Section "Device" <Option "sw_cursor"> did the trick at least so far. I like a trackball so much I got a new Logitech Marble Mouse and plugged it in with a little fear and trepidation that I would start the help cycle all over. It works great!. My thanks to all. My apologies to anyone I missed.
New Subject: Ghost in the X window.
Pop up menus and the mouse produce a ghost beside them. Although the ghost consists of horizontal lines, I need to fix it. Several of you noted that I may have not configured the viedo card correctly. I will go flutz around and try to come up with some intelligent questions.
Thanks Much John Hammack@ridgenet.net
