I would like to use my ps2 mouse or even my serial mouse in a a DOS program. Do I need to download specific mouse drivers for DOS? If so, what is a good net link?

Windows uses its own mouse drivers which unfortunately do not work under DOS. To use the mouse under any DOS program you will have to install a real mode driver.

I driver you use depends on you mouse manufacturer however I find that a Microsoft mouse driver works with most brands of mice.

A good place to find drivers is at www.windrivers.com.

To download the microsoft driver go to:
