A couple of days ago I managed to break a pin in my mouse-port, the one 
conserning up-down :( I still havent managed to get it fixed as no stores 
around here seem to have these common RS232 9pin male plugs.. strange yes.
Anyway.. running amigaos I have no prob since there are so many proggys 
letting me use the joystick-port, but in linux and netbsd its not quite 
that simple.. I tried in netbsd to let /dev/mouse -> /dev/mouse1 instead
of /dev/mouse -> /dev/mouse0, but it didnt help any..
And in linux I havent quite had a look at it yet .. I'm a bit buzy here
getting everything finnished before I take Daneel home for X-mas...

So, how do I do it ??
