I want to change my mouse from the default (specified on install) to a Logitech MouseMan Wheel.  Where do I do this?

Seems pretty simple, just need to update the "drivers" right?

Where is mouseconfig located?

I get:

[root@drevil sbin]# mouseconfig
bash: mouseconfig: command not found

It been a while since I last used RedHat, but I believe the command was named 'mouse-config' or something like that (try 'mouse<tab>' where you hit the [tab] button on your keyboard, not typing exactly 'tab' ;) )

Or else you can do this from 'linuxconf'

I found mouseconfig in /usr/sbin - added it to my path and configured.  

Kudos to MFCRich for getting this answer to me first.

Thanks, I found mouseconfig and was able to reconfigure to use a wheel.
