    For what it's worth: I have a Logitech optical scroll mouse working nicely in Fedora Core 1. Here's the applicable part of XF86Config. Note in particular lines # 7 and # 4. Compare the latter to the "IMP/S2" in the post from Abhi Beckert (or was that a typo?).

    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"                    # 1
    	Identifier  "Mouse0"                  # 2
    	Driver      "mouse"                   # 3
    	Option	    "Protocol" "IMPS/2"      # 4
    	Option	    "Device" "/dev/psaux"    # 5
    	Option	    "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"     # 6
    	Option	    "Emulate3Buttons" "no"   # 7
    EndSection

    Thanks!!! When I booted into mandy to try that, I was greeted by X failing to start. Fixed that typo and replaced Mouse0 with Mouse1 and it started up, and my scroll wheel is working!

    This is my working config:

    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier "Mouse1"
        Driver "mouse"
        Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
        Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
        Option "Buttons" "5"
        Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    EndSection

    That's great, I'm glad I could help. The matter of Mouse0 vs Mouse1 is easy: It can be named anything you want as long as it agrees with what is in the Section ServerLayout. That section is usually at the top of the XF86Config or xorg.conf file. Try to read through the man page for XFree86 (or is it xorg.conf?) if you haven't, to learn about the basic structure of the file and see how you can have multiple configurations, multiple mice, multiple monitors, etc.

    Cheers~
