You will probably need a newer version of X. I think X 4.3 is the first
to support color mouse cursors. 4.3 is in experimental. You will need to

deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian ../project/experimental main contrib

to your sources.list and (I can't remember exactly) I think "apt-get -t
experimental x-window-system" Then you can use any of the cursor themes

Not sure about this one. I am guessing that changing the cursor color
will remove some of the need for that though, right?
