1) First get the specs for your graphics card and monitor. Your
system docs &/or Windows system info applications should help
2) Did you install version 3.3.6 of XFree86 as opposed to 4.1
or 4.2? (If you've done a stock install 3.3.6 is what you've
got). For 3.3.6, install and run the XF86Setup package from
pkgsrc. In it, pick wsmouse for the mouse setting and /dev/wsmouse
(or is it /dev/wsmouse0 ? --- can't recall & I'm away from my
system right now). All the other stuff should be pretty clear.
Say Yes at the end when it asks if it should set up the link for
That should do it.
