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.

Ditto. I can't get my mouse wheel working either (using Red Hat 7.3). The mouse is a logitech two button mouse with the wheel as a third button. Unfortunately I don't know more about the mouse. It worked fine on Windows though.
I do not know how to reference another thread inside of a post. But it is thread ID 24161 that has alot of syntax on the files for the wheel mouse. And feedback on the users that used it. Use the search on "Wheel Mouse" and it is listed as "Scrolling with Logitech Mouse in X"
To all in linuxquestions.org You guys rule! I have gotten more help here than anywhere else on the net. I have to recommend www.antionline.com for the people here, it is a security website that I also joined...great people there who help out linux noobs...windows people too especially about security. As a matter of fact they first referred me here.
Gameon: This is Excalibur. Your earlier post stated you were running RH 7.3. Are you running XFree version 3 or 4? The file you posted appears to look more like a version 3 file. I do not know RH very well at all. But if it shipped with both versions of X, and you are running version 4, then you might look for a XF86Config-4 file instead or something similar. You might also look to see if you have a /var/log/XFree86.0.log file. If RH has that file, then it should state the version of X and exactly what config file it is using.
If version 3, I do not have any files available anymore on that platform and my memory is not what it used to be. So I am not much help.
