The HP system, and WIN98 are working well, with the mouse connected on COM1.
There is a DOS based program that I want to use, that is configured to use COM1 for the printer.
What options do I have to move the mouse off of com1.  The system does have a COM4 adapter.
Will WIN98 accomidate a mouse on COM4?  What configuration setting should I adjust, and where?
