What mouse r u using? As well as system specs. Also, 9.2 fixed alot of annoyances that plagued 9.1. Come to think of it, I was quite impressed with 9.2, seems to work flawlessly with all of my hardware, with minor intervention from me. If your not set on 9.1, give 9.2 a whirl.

Blind Mouse

Well I am using a Fellowes Optigel 5 button mouse. I also was looking onto 9.2 A friend gave me 9.1 but I think I will buy 9.2 . I have reinstalled windows today so I could get on the net to fix my problem. I went to the fellowes site to see if they had something for linux but to no avail. I am dead set on getting rid of windows! I have a hp vectra vl600 533 intel p3 128mb ram 10gb hd if that helps.

How about putting
Option ``SWCursor''
into your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file and see if that helps.
