256-color Cursors

How can you load a 256-color (or 16-color for that matter) cursor in a C/C++/MFC Windows program? You can create a 256 color cursor in Visual C++'s resource editor but LoadCursor doesn't let you specify which device to load and it apparently doesn't automatically load the 256-color cursor when I'm in Hi-Color video mode. I tried playing around with LookupIconIdFromDirectoryEx() but I didn't get too far with this.

::LoadImage() also loads the B&W cursor for me. My work-around was to make separate cursors -- one color and one B&W -- and to select the appropriate one myself.
