the problem:
i have installed suse 9.3 and i cant see my mouse cursor even tho the mouse(logitech plain optical corded 2+1) is working as in i know its detected so i think its a graphic problem.
i have a 6800GS card on my sys which was detected as 0cc00 during suse's installation.

Doesn't sound like an nvidia problem - if you can see X working, the only problem is the mouse configuration - use yast to configure your mouse. Alternatively, read the nvidia readme and configure your mouse yourself, but it should be straightforward with yast. If all else is ok, copy /etc/X11/XF86Config to a backup before calling up yast, then look at what yast did. I think sax2 also works but will surely alter your /etc/X11/XF86Config file.
