If you have xserver-xorg-input-mouse installed, you have a problem
with the InputDevice section of your xorg.conf.  Now I found plenty of
examples on Google, but to save you time, here's mine.  

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Configured Mouse"
        Driver          "mouse"
        Option          "CorePointer"
        Option          "Device"                "/dev/psaux"
        Option          "Protocol"              "ImPS/2"

You also need to install
xserver-xorg-input synaptics    (touchpad)
xserver-xorg-video-ati          (ATI Display Driver)
xserver-xorg-video-vesa (in case the ati package doesn't work for you)

Thats about it.


Your mouse has moved.  Windows needs to be restarted for the
changes to take effect.  [OK]
