From Knoppix, print the /etc/X11/XF86Config (or XF86Config-4) and look at the "InputDevice" section (identifier:Mouse1), "Device" section (your graphic card), "Monitor" and "Screen' sections.
You probably can use these settings in redhat: boot redhat in console mode (init 3) then edit /etc/X11/XF86Config-4.
