Okay, now we get serious ...
we need to tell X that your mouse is a Serial mouse, not a ps/2 one, so we
look to /etc/X11/XF86Config
There's a few ways to set up this file, you can use your favourite text
editor and do it manually (not for the faint hearted !), or you can use one
of the many utilities (text and graphics based) to configure it.
Two long standing friends here are 'xf86config' (text based, good, but
getting old), and 'XF86Setup' (also good but requires the VGA16 XServer to
be present). In either, select the mouse type to be serial on /dev/mouse (or
/dev/ttyS0 if you want), reconfigure the rest and away you go ....
The simpler method (if you're friendly with your text editor, see the vi
tutorials on linux.ie/ if not) is to change the device line in the Pointer
section of your XF86Config to point to /dev/ttyS0 or /dev/mouse.
If you're having problems with this bit send me a cop of your XF86Coinfig
Hope this helps,
