When I restart my system from win95 to DOS the mouse does not work.  This has made it impossible to play any DOS games which use a mouse.   Any help would be appreciated.

To answers:

1) place mouse.com on the root C: directory..
then when you boot to DOS, type mouse at the C:> and the mouse will be loaded...

Or place a line in the dosstart.bat that identifies the mouse, and mouse.com
(ie: c:\mouse\mouse.com or mouse.exe  which ever your machine requires)..

Need mouse.com? I'll send a version to you via e-mail..
