This list isn't meant for asking questions regarding installation
issues. It is only meant to discuss documentation regarding FreeBSD,
like the handbook and articles.

The handbook ( Appendix C offers a
description and charter of each mailinglist available. Please read it
before sending mail to a list...

That said, try: Option  "Protocol"    "auto"

To get the mousewheel working, add: Option  "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

P.S. Veel plezier met FreeBSD :-)
