linuxnewbie.org: Your XF86Config Travel Guide

[ Thanks to Sensei for this link.

This is how I get through the xf86config procedure. I
already know my video card (Trident 9680 with 8 megs), my monitor
specs (horiz= 30-35[k], vertical= 43-90), and my mouse is a PS/2
3-button type. My keyboard is a standard 101 key type.”

“From the command line I type xf86config and I see that I can
quit at anytime with ctrl-c. For the sections that say “Hit return
to continue, I simply hit . For the mouse I choose a PS/2 mouse.
Emulate 3-buttons? No. This means to allow a two button mouse act
like a it has 3 by pressing both at once. (For Linux, a 3-button
mouse is very convenient.) For mouse device, I hit to select the
default /dev/mouse. Make a link to /dev/mouse? Yes. XKeyboard? Yes.
For the keyboard I choose a Standard 101-key. Enable bindings?
