Lightbulb Try this way.

I have a how to. It's really for Mandrake 9.1 but should work. Also note, if you have a /etc/XF86Config-4 file you should edit it. If not edit the /etc/XF86Config file. Here's the link:

Hope this helps. That 'vi' editer is pretty tuff for a newbie. It almost beat the crap out of me and I had a book telling me how to use it.
