Thanks for the responses. I hope this will help:
Currently I have this in my xorg.conf.new file:
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/sysmouse"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
I start Xorg by using the "startx" method, and it
starts KDE just fine. When I try to start xorg by
typing "Xorg", KDE does not start.
Back to the conf file, I have tried to define
"Options" "Buttons" "5" (did not work)
"Options" "ZAxisMapping" "Y" (from a previous
thread, also did not work)
So, does it matter where my xorg.conf.new file is at?
Mine is in the /root directory, which is where it was
originally configured. Is there another conf file I
need to edit? again, I'm stuck on this one.
If this is not enough about the problem, please feel
free to ask me questions, as I would love to solve
