Any Ideas?

I just installed Redhat 8.0 after playing around with Mandrake 9 for awhile. Everything worked fine for me while I was using Mandrake, and also during the install of Redhat. Once I finished installing Redhat though my mouse stopped working. It is an old 2 button serial mouse.

I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on why it would just stop working like that, and maybe a way I could try and fix it. I have no other mouse plugs on the computer besides the serial, and it seemed to work fine just the other day.

I appreciate any help any of you can provide.

Tried this a few times. I sleceted a generic 2 button serial mouse, which is what mine is. I unchecked the emulate 3 button box, and I tried all four different com ports. Restarting after each time I slected a new one...

Am I doing something wrong here? What else might be the problem? Agian, I appreciate any help.
