My one experience with a "cigar" USB flash drive was not successful. The
support on the web seems to be pretty complete, and I've heard of many
people using it, but I did not have sucess.
My USB mouse works like a charm. I have found utopia with my laptop
mouse situation. I've got a usb mouse plugged into the docking station,
and have that configured for mouse wheel, etc. but my PS/2 glidepad on
the laptop itself can have emulate 3 buttons on, and they don't
conflict. When I had a PS/2 mouse on the docking station, the two
configurations confused eachother, since the data comes from the same
ports (?). /dev/psaux, anyway.
