Two mice, PS/2 and USB, under Linux?

Hello

I just installed Mandrake 9.2 on my computer, so I can now switch between that and XP. It detected my external USB mouse just fine, but the built-in eraser point mouse on my laptop is another story. Is there any way to enable both mice at the same time? I like being able to type and use the keyboard mouse without having to move my hand over to the big mouse.

Can I just add another mouse device to my XF86Config file? Where would it be mounted, or is it? Do I have to mount it? How would I go about doing that?

Thanks for your help

I wish I could help, but I don't see this as a problem. I thought that, generally, when you plug an exernal mouse into a laptop, you wanted the touch pad or whatever to be deactivated?

Well, I don't.
