Com-port mouse fc6

Hi all!

I am trying to install fc6 on on machine that only has an com port mouse.

Is there any command to get the install to use an com port mouse? Want to install normal, not text. Have tried text many times, but cant get it working, adding a user, setup x11 etc..

Any ideas?

Try using; linux isa

According to the Installation guide this should allow you to configure the ISA devices on your computer, hopefully this means the serial mouse, see section A.5. Enhancing Hardware Support;
