I just got through doing this...

xf86cfg will create ~/XF86Config

Exit it with ctrl-alt-backspace if you can't get the numeric pad
pseudo-mouse to work.  (Hint: ignore button1-3, use click etc.)

Fix the mouse settings with an editor.  (For me, its /dev/gpmdata and mouse
type IMPS/2)

You should now be able to run xf86cfg with the -xf86config option and have
the mouse work.

After you are happy with the settings, save them and copy it to
