why kill perfectly good serial mice? they are getting to be a bit of a
rare breed... radioshack has both serial (null modem) and parallel
(laplink) cables already cooked up... and trust me... the parallel
approach is a whole lot faster than the serial port could ever
theres a program called 'hjsplit' (look in the 'garbo pc' archives)
that will be usefull if you wish to take the floppy copy approach...
