Anyone knows how to get a USB optical mouse to work in DOS environment, with windows 2000 or xp etc. Thanks.

Have a look in the BIOS on the machine.
There should be an option to enable USB DOS emulation or something like that. I can't remember the exact name right now :(

Look for anything called "Legacy Support" or "Human Interface ..." in the BIOS.

Real DOS? Probably not...

Agreed, but have a look here, scrolling down to USB Mouse in DOS


You would be best off getting a PS/2 mouse and forget USB for running real DOS .
