How to slow down mouse? (FC3)

simple question that i feel dumb for asking-but how can you slow down the mouse? Mine is moving too fast for my liking and i can't figure out how to slow it down!

Assuming you're using GNOME, under the preferences there is a Mouse applet. The Motion tab has mouse speed settings.

Go to Control Center -> Peripherals -> Mouse. Under the advanced tab, there is a setting to change the mouse accelaeration.

"Accelleration" may not be what you want to change.
There's also an option for "Resolution" in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf or /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 (depending on distro), and mine looks like this:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "Resolution" "3000"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

Try different values for "Resolution". You'll need to restart X ( <CRTL><ALT><Backspace> ) to see the effects of changes.
