What breed of rodent are you dealing with there?

/etc/X11/XF86Config probably needs tweaking in the "Pointer" section.  I
have a PS/2 mouse, and had to adjust it to

#Section "InputDevice" 
# Identifier and driver 
Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse" 
Option "Protocol" "PS/2" 
Option "Device" "/dev/gpmdata"

If you have something else and can't find the right incantation, you know
where to ask!
