PS/2 vs. Intellimouse ??


What is the difference between the 2? I am using Slack 9.0 and when I go to configure the mouse they have a seperate selection for PS/2 mouse and Microsoft Intellimouse(PS/2 compatible).

thats right but when you choose intellimouse and if you want
your wheel to work you have to edit Xfree86config file
