I have a toshiba satellite pro 420 CDS with a PS/2 Internal mouse.  When I use Xconfigurator, no matter what mouse I choose, it always says the mouse is busy.  I have tried what the XF86.org page says (that you should kill some process) but that process is not running!  The IRQ is 12.  I am running Red Hat Linux 3.03, and X 3.something.

By the way, I a a newbie to Linux, but not to dos and IRQW's and that crap.  ALL I want is XWidnows

What you need to do is add the ClearDTR and/or ClearRTS options to the XF86Config file under the pointers section. This will clear these and get rid of the busy error.
