well, it depends on where you'll wanna use the mouse. in X you'll wanna find what device it's on (default for mice is /dev/mouse, but for usb it's /dev/input/mice). the key thing is that you'll wanna use "IMPS/2" as the protocol, rather than just PS/2. IMPS/2 is the intellimouse protocol, but it'll work the same for a logitech mouse.

if you need exact XF86Config lines then lemme know and i can post mine.

Section "InputDevice"

# Identifier and driver

Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option "ZaxisMapping" "4 5"

EndSection


you need a link like this


ln -s /dev/input/mice /dev/mouse

i'm having the same problem with my logitech usb optical wheel mouse with slackware 8... i've tried adding the Xaxis line but it's not working for me... for netscape! I was roaming around and tried the wheel over a bash console and it started scrolling... now how come it doesnt scroll for netscape???

you would need to map it to the arrow keys for netscape 4.xx I believe, or some other fancy mapping, it does not support the wheel the way the newer versions do.

Maybe this works for you (did for me), tho the last version supported here is Nutscrape-4.79.
