HI Monique-

Shoulda provided the complete story... Sorry about that.  Here is the one
I am using with great success,


Just to restate... This one works very well with two different MS mouse
types I have tried including the MS Trackball Explorer and the MS Cordless
Optical Mouse.  I switch between two systems all the time and never lose
the cursor or have any problems with X.  I don't have to restart any
services.  I don't run GPM here at all on my debian box.
