Description Ryan Jonasson 2000-03-30 20:10:58 UTC
When selecting a Microsoft Intellimouse (Serial) as my mouse, the X Installer automatically chooses default actions for the next 4-5 screens which include type of install (Workstation default, I wanted upgrade), Automatically partitioning and formatting (um, no), time zone, and a couple other minor screens. The next screen you get to choose anything at is the root password prompt and by this time the installer has blown away your existing partitions. This problem does not present itself if you choose a standard 2 button serial mouse.

I could not reproduce this in the test lab with an Intellimouse 1.1A serial mouse.

Upon further investigation, I discovered that I don't have a true MS Intellimouse - just a plain jane MS Wheel mouse. Would this have caused my problem?
