omfg YES! It works! See my victory-dance!

In the section "ServerLayout" I changed:

Code:
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
to
Code:
InputDevice "Alps GlidePoint PS/2" "CorePointer"
and in the section "InputDevice" I changed:

Code:
Identifier "Mouse0"
  Driver "mouse"
  Option "Protocol" "auto"
  Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
to
Code:
Identifier "Alps GlidePoint PS/2"
  Driver "mouse"
  Option "Protocol" "GlidePointPS/2"
  Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
  Option "Emulate3Buttons"
and voila, Fluxbox ex machina!

Thanks everybody for your help!!

haha! grats! and if you want to test a little deeper, i think it would probably work if you just changed the protocol from "auto" to "PS/2", i don't think it needs to know the specific stuff about your touchpad, except that your protocol is "auto".

I guess I'll save that for the next adventure: getting that additional usb-mouse to work
