I just installed gpm after reading your setup.
My PS/2 mouse instantly left the screen, and
X would make a beep sound whenever i moved
the mouse. My settings were:
repeat type: m83
Those were the defaults provided by gpm, so i
just took them. I think that the repeat type and
type may be wrong though. If anyone here is using
gpm with a PS/2, please send me your settings.

I backed up my XF86Config-4 file first, then i
added the SampleRate, BaudRate, and device
you mention above. I did end up getting my old
mouse back, but i would like a second try at
getting this wheel to work. Perhaps i should
RTFM or something...
