Slack8 and mouse won't mix

After full install of Slack8, mouse is totally out of sync. i have tried every ps2 option in the "mouseconfig" but still not getting it. I'm using the MS optical and have not had any problems with other ditros. Whats the deal with Slack??

Is it X that you are having problems? RedHat, Mandrake etc...Set things up so that you don't have to, but depending on your mouse, Slack needs some configuration, manually that is. No fancy pants gui's. So the question is, is it USB or is it really PS/2? If it's USB you may want to load the appropriate modules from /etc/rc.d/rc.modules by uncommenting the line. Better yet, you may want to recompile the kernel only with the options you want. It'll speed things up and is a good idear anyhow. There is a file here: /usr/src/linux-2.4.5/Documentation/usb/input/input.txt
that will give you ideas of what you may want your rc.gpm and XF86Config to be...
