Just to clarify things :

- wsmoused doesn't need a '-p' option when used with a wsmouse
  compatible mouse, i.e all kind of PS/2 mice, as well as old BusMouse
  mice (corresponding drivers are pms, pmsi, lms, mms).
  By default, the device is '/dev/wsmouse' but if you have
  multiple wsmouse mice, you can use '-p /dev/wsmouse0' or '-p
  /dev/wsmouse1' to use only one of the mice.

- wsmoused *does* need a '-p option' when used with a serial mouse. For
  a serial mouse of the first serial port, you should use '-p
  /dev/cua00' and '-p /dev/cua01' for a serial mouse of the second
  serial port.
