Me too Greg!
I am also a newbie and my problem is with a Microsnot 3 button mouse on
RedHat 5.0.
What I've found is that after doing the "startx", I then need to
navigate around the screen to get to the xterminal, where I do a
"mouseconfig" and the mouse immediately responds. I've checked all the
dev settings and they are OK, ...........so maybe X just doesn't like
3button mice of whatever flavour.
I'll be interested to see what other responses you get.
