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.
