First you need to install your DOS mouse software in a directory called c:\mouse.

Then, you can either load them automatically by adding


to your autoexec.bat file.

To edit the autoexec.bat file type

sysedit [enter]

from the Run option on your start menu.

Another option is to manually type

c:\mouse\ [enter]

every time you reboot to DOS.
