I have a ps/2 mouse, how can I set it up for X windows? I am running minilinux. I see that linux sees it, how do I get X to? I heard to use the x86config, where is this? Thanks
When I start X it gives no errors but the mouse won't work.

in your file XF86Config, change the protocol with "PS/2" and the device with "/dev/psaux". Be sure to compile your kernel with the ps2 mouse support.
