USB in Dos

I was wondering if there was any way to get my USB-mouse to function in Dos. Seeing as I know close to nothing about USB, I was wondering if you guys knew a way (eg. USB Dos-drivers or somewhat...) or could point me in the right direction.

Check out this site. There are two USB mouse drivers on there. If those don't work, I suggest you get an USB to PS/2 adapter and just use CuteMouse.

Oh, and before I forget: Buying an USB mouse wasn't a smart move :P

Who says I bought it? My mother got it with her laptop from work (no real choice there for either me or my mom) and my PS/2-mouse broke down so it's the only one I have left which I can possibly use ('till next month when I might have the cash to buy a new one). But thanks for the info anyway Mr. C. :D

My mouse came with a converter.

Mr Creosote: Why is a USB mouse unwise? I do not have knowledge in the area of miceses.

Because they don't work in MS-DOS ;)
