How do you change the cursor for Win98?

I have animated cursors that work under win95 but how do I get them to work under 98.  Control panel themes look close but the dialog box with the file name is greyed out.

You can change it manually.
You click to control-panel
then, click on mouse icon
on there, go to pointer's tab
then click on the cursor you want to change, and then select the file you want to change to
then, click apply......

Just a little additional info here.   To see your whole collection of cursors at once. go to your Start>Find, and type "*.cur". No quotes.  There you will see all of your cursors and the locations. You probably have cursors in at least two files:
(1) C:\Windows\Cursors  and in
(2) C:\Program Files\Plus!\Themes. Then use your Browse funcion from Control Panel/Mouse Pointer to make a selection.

Correction to what I just said.  You are looking for animated cursors.  So go to Start>Find and type *.ani for the animated cursors.  Only the extension ".ani" identifies your animated cursors.

Thankyou.  It's the same as Win95!  Win98 themes confused me into thinking you can't change the cursor.
