Help text

Say Y here if your machine has a bus mouse as opposed to a serial mouse. Most people have a regular serial MouseSystem or Microsoft mouse (made by Logitech) that plugs into a COM port (rectangular with 9 or 25 pins). These people say N here.

If you have a laptop, you either have to check the documentation or experiment a bit to find out whether the trackball is a serial mouse or not; it's best to say Y here for you.

This is the generic bus mouse driver code. If you have a bus mouse, you will have to say Y here and also to the specific driver for your mouse below.

To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called busmouse.
