Mouse and Trackball same computer

How do I connect a mouse and a trackball to the same computer? I want to use a trackball and someone else wants to use a mouse.
1 Solution
hook one to the PS2 port and the other to a serial port, this is not a problem if you have free serial port, I have mouse on the PS2 port and a touchpad on the serial port and they work great.
P.S. you can have fun with someone that doesn't know you have two input devices, they are trying to move the mouse pointer and you move the trackball and they think the mouse is going crazy
There's a cable out ther ecalled YMOUSE that lets you connect TWO pointing devices at the same time, and have BOTH active.
