To do what?

mouseconfig works in slack, but if you just have a ps2 mouse, you shouldn't be having many problems.

The mouse configuration is in the Xfree config file. Either do it by hand, or use the config-tools that came with redhat

it really depends on the distro. most distro's still use mouseconfig, some like mandrake use harddrake (a graphical tool) ofcourse you can add things to your distro to make it more to your liking, buts something else

Open the file /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 in a text editor and look at Section "InputDevice". This is mine (for a 5 button optical ps/2 mouse),

Section "InputDevice"

# Identifier and driver

    Identifier        "Mouse1"
    Driver        "mouse"

    Option "Protocol"    "ExplorerPS/2"
    Option "Device"      "/dev/psaux"
    Option "Buttons"    "7"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"


Yours will not look the same but if you post what you have there now plus the details on what sort of mouse you have I'm sure we can point you in the right direction.
