xorg.conf on DamnSmallLinux


Hi!

I have a serial mouse that connects to /dev/ttyS0 and I'd like to use it on my DamnSmallLinux computer.

I need to edit the xorg.conf to do so, but there is no xorg.conf.

Should I just create the file and put whatever I need in there?

Um, the mouse is actually working just fine; I used the xsetup.sh script, and selected the serial mouse.

But I still wonder where the xorg.conf is.
Clearly, this is not the newer version if X, that doesn't need a conf at all. What if i'd like to change something X specific again?
Since there is no xorg.conf, I'd not be able to do that...
