I just tried to send this on to the original sender, and failed, so I've
sent it to the list in case it's useful:


I just switched from a serial mouse to a PS/2 mouse. This is copied
pretty much from my sysadmin book of power.

  - Rebuild kernel with 

       device psm0 at isa? port "IO_KBD" tty irq 12 vector psmintr

  - Reboot with new kernel
  - Make mouse device

       # cd /dev; ./MAKEDEV psm0

  - Alter X config file (/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/XF86Config) and set the
    following in the mouse section

        Protocol "PS/2"
        Device "/dev/psm0"

That was all I had to do, and it works like a charm.

Hope it helps,
