Don't post the entire XF86Config, just the parts about the keyboard and mouse.

Ok, sorry 4 make u waiting.
Here we go:

# **********************************************************************
# Core keyboard's InputDevice section
# **********************************************************************

Section "InputDevice"

Identifier "Keyboard1"
Driver "Keyboard"
# For most OSs the protocol can be omitted (it defaults to "Standard").
# When using XQUEUE (only for SVR3 and SVR4, but not Solaris),
# uncomment the following line.

# Option "Protocol" "Xqueue"

# Set the keyboard auto repeat parameters. Not all platforms implement
# this.

# Option "AutoRepeat" "500 5"

# Specifiy which keyboard LEDs can be user-controlled (eg, with xset(1)).

Option "Xleds" "1 2 3"

# To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.

# Option "XkbDisable"

# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
# lines below (which are the defaults). For example, for a European
# keyboard, you will probably want to use one of:
#
# Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
# Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
#
# If you have a Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
#
Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"
#
# If you have a US "windows" keyboard you will want:
#
# Option "XkbModel" "pc104"
#
# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
#
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
#
# or:
#
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
#
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
#
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"


# These are the default XKB settings for XFree86
#
# Option "XkbRules" "xfree86"
# Option "XkbModel" "pc101"
# Option "XkbLayout" "us"
# Option "XkbVariant" ""
# Option "XkbOptions" ""

# When using XQUEUE, comment out the above two lines, and uncomment

# Baudrate and SampleRate are only for some Logitech mice. In

Also there is a utility that usually configures everything nicely.
make sure all X sessions are closed then run.
XFree86 -configure
then it will tell you how to test your configuration.
If that works copy that
cp /root/XF86Config.new /etc/X11/XF86Config-4

Good luck
Matt

Hello people!
Unfurtunatelly, after all, I donīt have control over my X yet!
The "X86free - config" seemed to work (told me that mouse was under /dev/mouse0), but when using the XF86config generated I got a blank/gray screen wih a X in the center, and no mouse or keyb.

And for my pain, nothing have changed when trying to edit XF86config on Aussieīs way.

Do you have any sugestions? Please??

Before you do 'startx' do 'xwmconfig' and select a window manager, the grey screen with the X is the default XFree86 window manager, and it dosn't do much :-)

Arrow

Hello guys!
After a long batlte I begin to see some hope:

In order to make my keyb works on X I did everything, even unpluging and re-pluging my keyb. I did so many things that now I donīt know fo sure which had worked.
Now he keyb works on X, but itīs all scrambled: the arrow keys doesnīt work nor the dead-keys.
Can you help me setting up it?
I almost forget to tell you that mouse still doesnīt works!
