The only mouse on my system is a Logitech IFEEL USB mouse. The installer
detects the mouse and it works, but the mouse selection dialog tries to
setuo a PS/2 mouse

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plug in Logitech IFEEL USB mouse and no other mice
2. See what mousetype the installer tries to setup

I think this is a dupe - definately needs to be fixed.
Comment 2 Glen Foster 2001-02-23 16:51:20 EST
We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2001-02-25 12:02:54 EST
This may or may not be a dupe.  The bug with preselecting USB mice has been
fixed.  However, the iFeel mice are brand new, and may identify themselves
differently.  We need one of these in house to make sure.  I've seen them on the
shelves at the local computer stores...I'll try to pick one up in the next few
days.  Putting in NEEDINFO state until then.

They should definitely be HID devices.
Comment 5 Michael Fulbright 2001-02-28 10:11:43 EST
I would be surprised if it looks any different than any other USB mouse, these
things are standardized. I would recommend confirming USB mouse detection before
buying anything.

This has been fixed since Wolverine.
Comment 7 Glen Foster 2001-03-02 13:05:06 EST
Our installer team-lead thinks we should really fix this before next release.
