Yes, It works for me with an XFree86. I compiled the X system
myself, but there were some problems with installing the man-pages (most
of them were missing, so the installation alwas stopped -- I did a rather
brute-force workaround), so you might want to choose to go with fukui's
precompiled RPMs.

I used the XF86Config.ibook from the SuSE site, with minor adjustments to
correct the mouse device names and the keyboard settings. If you can't
find it, say so and I'll send you mine.

Never mind the hours you've spent ;) There's going to be more hours...

What kernel are you using?
