Hi, I just finished witha fresh install of NetBSD 1.5 and don't have a 
working serial mouse.
It's a basic 2-button serial mouse and, when I configure X,  the 
PROTOCOL is set to "wsmouse" and the device "/dev/wsmouse".  
X starts up just fine that way but my pointer won't move from the 
center.  No response at all.
When I change the device to "/dev/wsmouse0" or "/dev/wsmouse1" 
or "/dev/wsmouse2", X coughs and spits and gags on it and shows 
an error coming from my mouse configuration.
So, what should I be doing with my mouse information?
Do I need to configure wscons to designate my mouse as 
/dev/wsmouse0 or 1 or... well, I just don't know what I should be 
doing at the moment.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
