    you need something like this is your xorg.conf

    Code:
        Identifier  "Mouse1"
        Driver "mouse"
        Option "Protocol"   "ImPS/2"
        Option "ZAxisMapping"   "4 5"
        Option "Device"     "/dev/mouse"
    now the Option "Device" section might also be "/dev/input/mouse" or "/dev/psaux"

    try out different options and see what works.
    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL
