Well I googled my mouse, and found a bug report and several questions, but no 
solutions to the problem.  I'm sure it's doable, but I don't want to spend 
the time with it right now. The PS/2 mouse that doesn't work is from another 
system anyway.

I have a spare serial mouse around, so I'll use it.  What do I need to do in 
the X config file to set up the serial mouse as opposed to PS/2?

Okay, I have ports installed... but... um... now what? tehe.  I've never used 
Gentoo, so I'm at a loss.  How do I go about installing those packages...
