Thanks for the info..

Here's what I find now.
If I look at /var/log/Xorg.0.log after a fresh re-boot I see the following in
relation to the synaptics driver:

The driver gets loaded:

(II) LoadModule: "synaptics"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/input/synaptics_drv.o
(II) Module synaptics: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
       compiled for, module version = 1.0.0
       Module class: X.Org XInput Driver
       ABI class: X.Org XInput driver, version 0.4

Then the  driver fails to find a valid device??

(**) Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
(**) Mouse0: Device: "/dev/input/mice"
(**) Mouse0: Protocol: "IMPS/2"
(**) Option "CorePointer"
(**) Mouse0: Core Pointer
(**) Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
(**) Option "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"
(**) Mouse0: Emulate3Buttons, Emulate3Timeout: 50
(**) Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
(**) Mouse0: ZAxisMapping: buttons 4 and 5
(**) Mouse0: Buttons: 5
(II) Synaptics touchpad driver version 0.13.5
Synaptics no synaptics event device found (checked 5 nodes)
(**) Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
(**) Option "SHMConfig" "on"
Query no Synaptics: 6003C8
(EE) Synaptics no synaptics touchpad detected and no repeater device
(EE) Synaptics Unable to query/initialize Synaptics hardware.
(EE) PreInit failed for input device "Synaptics"
(II) UnloadModule: "synaptics"
(**) Option "CoreKeyboard"
(**) Keyboard0: Core Keyboard

I've run the hardware browser and the system shows both the internal mouse (the touchpad) and the external usb mouse as /dev/input/mice

Any ideas???

Not really. For me, it's always Just Worked(tm) on my Thinkpad with FC4. Check /var/log/dmesg and /var/log/messages and make sure the kernel finds
the Synaptics device. If it doesn't, then the xorg driver probably won't either.

My synaptics driver is synaptics-0.14.0-2, which ships with FC4. I think you ought to be able to rebuild it and use it with FC3. It may detect more devices.

Another post suggested reconfiguring your X with no external mouse.
