Slackware 9

I ppl 2 questions

I have just installed slackware for the first time and my wheelmouse doesn't work I have looked in the forums and found what to enter "Option "ZAxisMapping""4 5"" but in slack 9 I am lost on where to enter this.

I remember reading a thread somewhere that I can recompile a i386 package to a i686 but I don't know how. So if someone can show me how to point me in the right direction that would be great

You should add

Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

in the mouse/pointer section of your /etc/X11/XF86Config file. Notice the quotes on there--you need them like this. You also need the space between the 4 and 5. If you need any further help on how to do this with a text editor, let me know and I'll try to walk you through it using vi.
