I am trying to get my MS Wireless Intellimouse Explorer working under Mandrake 9.0 and I am not sure how to do this? I went to the Mandrake site and under hardware compatibilities it listed that the mouse works by doing the following:

add 'hid' into file /etc/modules

I'm new to linux and have no idea how to do this. Any Help would be great.

Hi Skinny,

The Mandrake 9.0 installer picked up my Microsoft USB Optical mouse without a problem...

To add "hid" to the /etc/modules file, open it the /etc/modules file with a text editor. You should find some sort of GUI editor in the menu's.
