Linux on Hyper-V, Mouse Support

I have successfully installed OpenSuSE and Ubuntu on Hyper-V, but I cannot get the mouse to function. Could somebody tell how to get mouse support?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Mouse support is available via the Integration Components. The mouse integration components for SLES 10 seem to have been made available two months ago; check out this blog post:

As far as I know, Suse Linux Enterprise Server is the only supported Linux distribution as yet. Agreements are being reported between MS and Red Hat to get official RHEL support as well, but it doesn't look like OpenSuse or Ubuntu will be supported any time soon.

I got it all working. I just use VNC now and have mouse functionality that route. For the network, I added a legacy adapter.
