Does anyone know how to connect two mice to a PC running win NT4. I am not sure but I dont think win nt will recognize USB ports. Can anyone comfirm this?. So my only other option is a serial port with a serial mouse and with this I am at a loss.

I recall NT not supporting USB at all. Serial isn't very friendly if you don't have the IRQ resources so that may be a problem. Your only other option is to get a Dual PS2 adapter commonly used with Laptops for using external mouse and keyboard. You will be able to use a common 2 button mouse as well as a trackball or scroll/3 button mouse at the same time on one connector.

Came across this. Don't know if it will help.
Haven't worked with Winnt so can't say it works.

Are you adventurous??
