SubjectRe: Question on USB mouse & laptop.
you need to run gpm -M (for gpm console dual mouse support

for xf86 4.x you need to make sure there are two mouse setups...

something like:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option "Protocol" "PS/2"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "off"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
To add another mouse just copy the above section and modify it, so that it
Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "off"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

then tweak the server layout section for the second mouse...

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "XFree86 Configured"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Mouse1" "AlwaysCore"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

see if that helps...
