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.

Last time I installed Slackware, my mouse didn't work at start, so I searched online and found out that if you edit your XF86Config file, by either browsing to it or using the xf86config wizard, that you can get your mouse working in there. I have the same mouse this time as I did last time, a Logitech Mx700 (a wireless optical mouse) and it is connected via USB. Last time, I got my mouse working no problem, I guess I chose the correct options the first time through, this time I have ran through xf86config so many times and I have been tryin all day to get my mouse to work. I've done several searches here and on google and everything I've found isn't working for me. Also, unfortunately I decided to delete my old Slackware installation (when I was installing the new one on /dev/hde). I know my mouse is working, batteries are full and it works on Windows XP. I just wonder what I am doing wrong this time around...
Last time I don't think I had Hotplug enabled and this time I remember that I enabled it during the installation. Maybe that could be the problem...?
And the following is my XF86Config for the mouse section:
# Identifier and driver
Option "Protocol" "Auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
# Mouse-speed setting for PS/2 mouse.
# Option "Resolution" "256"
# When using XQUEUE, comment out the above two lines, and uncomment
# the following line.
# Option "Protocol" "Xqueue"
# Baudrate and SampleRate are only for some Logitech mice. In
# almost every case these lines should be omitted.
# Option "BaudRate" "9600"
# Option "SampleRate" "150"
# Emulate3Buttons is an option for 2-button Microsoft mice
# Emulate3Timeout is the timeout in milliseconds (default is 50ms)
# Option "Emulate3Buttons"
# Option "Emulate3Timeout" "50"
# ChordMiddle is an option for some 3-button Logitech mice
# Option "ChordMiddle"
But my main question is about hotplug, how to disable it..?
