Need a second mouse pointer

Hello all, I have a user that is set up with dual monitors, where the second monitor is a clone of the first, so that they both display the same image.  This user is a sales person that uses the dual monitor set up to interact with his customes.  He is requesting that his customers be able to have some sort of pointing device that is echoed on the screen.  This way, he doesn't have to lean around his monitor to see what exactly they are pointing to on their monitor, thus defeating the purpose of the dual monitor set up.  Is there any app or hardware device that can accomplish this??

    Yes, I am aware that I could give him a second USB mouse, however he doesn't want the user to be able to control his mouse.  What he is looking for is a completely separate pointer.

    Why not just use 2 computers on a local network with Dameware...

    I have a feeling dual mouse support may cause IRQ conflicts and may not work in the way you want.
