I tried to keep this question off this list, but I have been patiently 
waiting responses from several other sources, and they don't seem to be 
panning out.  I wanted to replace my old Addison trackballs with new 
ones, because their action was getting quite jerky.  I insist on getting 
a track ball with this geometry:

              |                  |   |   |   |
              |                  |   |   |   |
              |   ---            +---+---+---|
              |  (   )                       |
              |   ___                        |
              |                              |
Excuse my miserable graphics, but that's the best I can produce.  Anyhow, 
I wasn't willing to pay $90 each for Logitech models, but I found some 
no-name models that claimed Microsoft compatibility and ran $20 each.  My 
problem is that, un XFree86, the middle mouse button won't work.  I've 
tried all the obvious combinations I could define from the XConfig file, 
but I still couldn't get it to work.  I would really like some help.

Of course, if someone said "RTFM, you fool" and included a reference to 
the FM, I would be even happier.  Even if it meant buying a book.
