The interupt 2 is best one i typicaly have network board in system
and the only free interupt for them is 5. If you use IRQ 2 the
/etc/sdevice.d/logi file must be set for IRQ 9. I have done this
with one of my systems with 386/ix 2.0.2. It works nicely with
X11.3 ISC rel 1.1 .
The other good reason to use logitech bus mouse is that there is
some bug in Vp/ix ( or in MS-windows logitech driver ) that
causes MS-windos crach randomly , mostly when there is some
load in the system. ms-windows works nicely with logitech bus mouse
and microsoft serial mouse.
