Welcome to LQ. I'd suggest you go with whatever default value it suggests, but most likely it's just /dev/mouse. You can also check the existing xorg.conf or XF86Config file (in the /etc/X11 directory) to see what it's using now. (Depending on your distro, your X server config file could be either xorg.conf or XF86Config, so I'm listing them both)

To see the contents of a given file, you can just use the "more" command
more /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Yep it was just /dev/mouse thanks for the info.

I think my 9600 pro is working now, however it is saying unkown video card but its showing 256mb ram on it. However it does not give me the option to turn on 3d acceleration.
