Not sure what you mean by "can't get the help screen to scroll down". As far as the mouse problem goes, how do you have it setup in the XF86Config file?

Are u refering to the scroll wheel of your mouse or to the scroll bar at some window?

I am refering to a scrolldown bar of the help window in each step of the install process. Sorry, I wasn't more explicit. And as for the XF86config setup I haven't been to that step yet.
Which brings up another question. I haven't been past the partition section but I think if I could get the help screen to scroll down I may be able to see what I'm doing wrong both with the partition and the mouse setup.
thanks in advance for any help.

Sounds like you are still in the install process... doing a graphical install but having trouble with your mouse. you may want to try a text install. Just type "linux text" at the first "boot:" prompt at the very beginning of the install process. You wont need your mouse duing a text based install.
