Maybe anyony is interesseted in this:

After booting the NetBSD Live! system to the kdm login window, the mouse
pointer doesn't move. My system is a notebook with a Redmond IntelliMouse
Optical USB attached

The reason: the mouse device is almost correct.
It has to be: /dev/wsmouse (instead of /dev/wsmouse0)

Here the steps to correct it (online):

1. login to root/root

2. open an xterm
      with <Alt><F2> --> Befehl*): xterm
	( *) german KDE)

3. # vi /etc/X11/XF86Config

	search for: wsmouse0
         this gets you to: Section "InputDevice" / Identifier "Mouse0"
	change:   /dev/wsmouse0  to   /dev/wsmouse

	to get the mouse wheel working insert this line directly
	after the corrected line:
	   Option	"ZAxisMapping"	"4 5"

	save the file
		IMHO this problem is caused by the KNOPPIX utility
		mkxf86config, which is used to build the XF86Config
		file on the fly.
4. Logoff
	<Strg><Alt><Entf> <-- german Keyboard.
				    <Entf> key in the middle! block

	Window: "Sitzung beenden für root"
	Use option: "Als anderer Benutzer anmelden"

5. at KDM login window:

	<Alt><M> for Button "Menu"
	Option "Restart X Server Alt-E"

	after restart of Xserver  the "intelligent" mouse works
	including the mouse wheel.

Best regards. / Hilmar.
