 There were two types of mouse pad on the sun's we had here.
I'm not sure what the difference was but I know that
one type would not work on the other. One type was with
a IPC. I'm not sure what the other came from.
I'm currently using a Fujitsu labled roller ball mouse.
I like these better than having to have the optical pad.
The particular mouse I have had some design problems but
I fixed mine and it has no problems now except the normal
dirty ball problem.
