The problem often occurs when going through a KVM.  If I plug my
new mouse directly into the box, it works.  I went to run level 3
and ran "Xorg -configure" and it built a new xorg.conf file in
/root/  The FC6 machine set the mouse protocol to
"Auto" in the generated config.  When I hooked the mouse back up
to the KVM, it went back to running around randomly and clicking
on things.  I have used the KVM successfully for several iterations
of Fedora with my old 3 button PS2 mouse.

The nice thing about the old system-config-mouse was that it gave
you a list of mice from which you could pick a best match.  I have
not stumbled across this list elsewhere.  I am currently loading FC4 on
test machine and will see what kind of mouse configuration it 
comes up with for the new mouse.  I will then try copying that
to my FC6 machine and see what happens.
