Description of problem:
Anaconda detects the Genius NetScroll+ Eye mouse (PS/2)
as a Generic - 3 buttons mouse (PS/2).
This is correct but not the best choice however.
After some experiments I found out that the best choice is
the Microsoft - IntelliMouse (PS/2). The difference is that
drivers for IntelliMouse enables mouse wheel.
This selection happens in all redhat distributions probably.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start installation process and wait for mouse detection
2. Look for the mouse devices section 

Actual Results:  There will be Generic - 3 buttons mouse (PS/2) mouse detected.

Expected Results:  The Microsoft - Intellimouse (PS/2) which is a better choice.

Bill does kudzu detect the wheel on PS/2 mice?
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2003-02-24 12:07:22 EST
As well as it can. It's done by poking the mouse protocol
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2005-09-23 16:01:25 EDT
In current releases, this is all done through the 2.6 kernel's input layer
automatically, and there's nothing else to be done. Therefore, closing this bug out.
