Hi John,

In looking for something else, I came across this:
Subject: [SLE] Invisible mouse pointer on installation

#> While installing SUSE 9.0 on a new computer,
#> I ran into a problem that has been mentioned on this list before.
#> It drove me nuts until I solved it,
#> so I thought I would share my solution with other SUSE Linux users.
#> The problem was this.
#> During the installation, the mouse (Microsoft optical wheel mouse) worked fine,
#> but after reboot, the pointer was invisible
#> (the mouse still functioned, but the pointer did not appear).
#> As a result, the GUI was almost unusable.
#> The SUSE support person pointed me to the support database,

#> Entering the line

#> in the Device section of /etc/X11/XF86Config solved the problem completely.

Hope this helps,
