Re: Compaq mouse setting for RH 9

This depends if you mean in X or not which you probably do and if you want to use the mouse wheel.

THe protocol for my Compaq mouse is "IMPS/2" and if you want the wheel to work you need the following option in /etc/X11/XF86Config

Option "Buttons" "5"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Never preceed any demonstration with anything more predictive than "watch this"
