OK. I found it
When I created it I was in root. Yes, you're correct, now I want to make the changes for the mouse. This is funny because I first had the mouse working fine, but my resolution sucked lemons, and everytime I'd edit the xorg.conf I would get the "No Screens ..." error and couldn't boot X, so I ran the xorgsetup a few times to get the monitor and video working. But then when I edited the mouse settings they weren't sticking so thats when I deleted the xorg.conf file in /etc/X11.
So, can I the the xorg.conf in the directory above and leave it there? Or, does it need to be in /etc/X11?

Okay the file should live in /etc/X11/ and is called xorg.conf as you say. however, you can have the file elsewhere. Can't quite rememeber how this is acheived but find it by typing find / -name xorg.conf
The i would recommend deleting the file (presuming it is not a sample file) and then running xorgconfig as root
then you'll want to know about a wheel mouse!
