lost control over mouse in suse 9.0


I configured suse 9.0 for the wrong mouse, and now it won't move. How can I get the original settings back?

I have Suse 9.0 alongside Windows XP on a dell inspiron 5100 laptop. In windows I can use the mouse (connected via usb) and the built in mousepad. Originally, when I installed Linux I did not have the mouse connected to the computer. I think I may have chosen the wrong mouse when Linux hardware detected the new mouse. Can someone tell me how to reverse this mistake?

Thanks, and Merry Christmas everyone!

Chris

You should be able to run sax2 in terminal, so you can reconfigure x that way.
Or you could edit /etc/X11/XF86Config manually.
