Thanks for the quick response.  I won't debate the difference between 
speed and acceleration,
although it might be fun, and one of might learn something.

Anyway, . . .

Since I am running the machine with the 10.1 suse right now, under 
windows (win modem hell), I tried your suggestion on my 10.3 machine.

Interesting results:
1) no "advanced" button, although that makes sense.
2) when I plugged in the usb mouse receiver, suse found it immediately 
and started working,  just like on windows.   That made me feel real 
good.  But I still didn't see  an "advanced" button, even though I went 
all the way to test in the install process.
