Thanks, but no joy with that.  I have seen reviews that state quite
clearly that for both the M30 and the M35 (very similar),
"/dev/event/mice" is the correct choice.  Using anything else appears
to cause the server to crash.

There is an entry when nvidia.o is loaded, noting "silken mouse
enabled" or some such thing.  I don't think that means much.  

I have started gpm, which uses usbmouse, and set the device in
XF86Config to /dev/gpmdata.  kdm starts fine, but there's no reaction
from the mouse.  I'm stumped.
