You can usually get an Intellimouse working with gpm using
an /etc/gpm.conf like:
And /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 containing:
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/gpmdata"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
The important thing is to set gpm's repeat type to raw, and
use IMPS/2 as the protocol and /dev/gpmdata as the device
when configuring X.
