Mouse & Modem problems RH 5.1

I just installed RH 5.1 on my pentium 90 with win95 on a separate hard drive (system commander) and am having the following problems:
1)When I boot up it says it detected an ATI busmouse and is installing it, I have a Microsoft inport busmouse. I believe that because of this, gpm and xwindows both give me fatal errors when i run them.
2)I have aol and seflin when i try to dial-up seflin it just hangs up. it doesn't ask me for a login or password.
Thanks in Advance

1) Try "mouse-test" and then "mouseconfig". Then you should find your correct mouse type for X in /etc/XF86Config (Section Pointer, Protocol "xxxx") and in /etc/sysconfig/mouse for gpm...

You can also use "gpm -k" and "gpm -t type"...

2) Try dialing by hand (minicom may help you). They can be expecting something from you (like <ENTER>) or may send you binary data (even PPP frames) to further authenticate through PAP or CHAP or something propietary ...

Good Luck
