USB Joystick Logitech Rumblepad XMAME Config Problem

I thinnk it is very close to working.

I do not know how to config things.

When the joystick is plugged in and I run cat /dev/input/js0
All the buttons on the joystick produce garbage on the screen.
I am assuming that means the joystick is working.

I am running MythDora 5.0 which runs under Fedoracore 8

I really want to use XMAME and the built in emulators but the joystick does not seem to work by default.

How do I set it up to work?
Please be specific as I am very new to command line input.

Just found this in the mythgame wiki: you also need to make sure the device is correct. In Ubuntu 6.10 (I AM USING FEDORACORE 8), the joysticks appear as /dev/input/js0 etc, however xmame assumes they are in /dev/js. To make it work, add -jdev /dev/input/js to the end of command string.

Assuming my joystick is on js0 where would I place this command?

Thank you for any help.
