Hi! I'm relatively new to Linux, I can find my way around it, but not much more than that.
Anyhow, I got a Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer from my dad's old comp. The mouse itself works fine, but Redhat 9 doesn't natively support the IM's button layout. I added a section for a the mouse in my XFree86 config file (forgot the name of it, though if I saw it I'd recognize it. It was in /etc/X11).
I did this after reading a webpage of someone who had gotten his IM to work in Linux.
I don't remember exactly what I did after editing the file, but I do know that shortly after this my keyboard quit on me!
It worked fine in the BIOS and even in GRUB, but as soon as the mouse interface for X loaded, no keyboard. I can't even log in to fix it!
The mouse worked the whole time, BTW.
Is there some way I can boot into "command line only" so I can undo that change I made?
Or did I royally Fork my installation?
And any tips of how to fix the KB AND get my Intellimouse working would be greatly appriciated!
Thanks for your time.
