This is the latest generation, with all kinds of extra bells and 
whistles I don't really want...it's a 7 button mouse. Apparently the 
protocol is perfectly compatible so far as left and right click goes, 
and so far as actual mouse movement. Is the mouse that you have one of 
the ones with the extra buttons? If so, do you use the ExplorerPS/2 
protocol, or the IMPS/2? Did you have to do extra manual configuration 
of the buttons?
