Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

And the wheel does not work if I put the zaxis on 6 7 like everyone else's mouse.
So needless to say the xmodmap "pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 4 5" broke the wheel so I assumed that the 4th and 5th number are for the wheel and made mine 'xmodmap "pointer = 1 2 3 4 5 6 7"' and the wheel worked again but the side buttons still didn't work in xev.
Well, although an RPM might be nice, not all developers are into making RPM's. Especially when source is more "universal". The work involved would only work on specific systems, whereas with source, you can make it work on ALOT of systems.
And you said "make install" gave you errors? That is really wierd, unless you weren't root. You do have to be root when running 'make install'. Configure and make went smooth, but make install produced errors. I would guess it's because you didn't have the directory it was trying to install to.
