It should also work with serial mice using that version of joydrv that I 
wrote. Unable to test it with the programs I did use it with in earlier 
years because my system is now out of system ram.  But I'd appreciate 
know whether or not it does work.  All 3 buttons on an M$ or logitek 
protocol mouse are supported and registered in the 8 byte mouse packet 
maintained at $10EC in system ram.
