a silly noobie installation problem, sorry, but i need a little advice
hey there. i just got mandrake 8.2. during the install, it doesnt recognise my mouse, no matter what mouse profile i pick. ive got a kensington orbit usb.
when it prods, it freezes.
is this a 8.2 thing? im thinking its just me. im getting dsl next week, so ill be able to download 10.0 then. ive searched all sorts of threads, and nothing helped .
i also have slax [dl'd it to get to know linux], and you have to type wheelmouse to get it started there [even tho its not a wheelmouse]. you can manually enter the info, but i would have no idea what i was doing. slowly, im learning.
id appreciate a little good advice if you can spare.
