hi!

i'm quite confused - since my "razer BS 2000" does not seem to be supported
(or be compatible to any other supported ps/2-mouse)...
(so i can't complete setting up xWin (with sax))...     :((

any experience with this problem out there?     *sigh*

mlg

I don't have any experience with this mouse other than trying a friends
out for a bit.

I am guessing that the PS/2 protocol is proprietary, which gives it the
high resolution.  so you might be out of luck there unless someone has any
insight?

A way you will probably be able to get it to work is to setup USB support
and use it in USB mode.  USB is a pain to setup for 2.2 kernels however.
