BG>Sounds great but how do you use this bitmap for you mouse cursor.

Here's the bitmap.  It needs to be read into an array of 32 integers.
Then you use interrupt &h33, setting the ax register to 9, the bx
register to 4 and the cx register to 0.  Then set the es register to the
VARSEG of your array and set the dx register to the VARPTR of your
array.  Then hit the interrupt and your mouse cursor is loaded.  Presto
- 1 pointing finger.  Gee, I think mom said something about that once,
but I can't remember ...  :)
