I am a relatively new convert myself - no regrets.
Advice? Well I am still a bit of a newbie myself, but...
Once you have xwindows working as you like it, back up the XF86config-4 file (usually "/etc/X11/XF86config-4").
When you are playing around with settings it is easy to overwrite this by accident - well it was easy for me, anyway.
When I was a total newbie to Mandrake, I had to go through that mouse problem 3 times cos I kept accidently re-configuring the damn thing.
