Mouses on Solaris X86

Mouses on Solaris X86

 Hi. I'm fairly new to messing with Solaris 2.51, and I was wondering
if anyone could help me. I have a Dell GXPro (PPro180), with the
standard microsoft 2 button mouse. Is there any way of either emulating
a 3 buttonmouse like the XFree86 Xserver does ? (By holding down both
buttons), or better yet, can I just change the mouse ? ( have a cheap
3 button serial mouse, but no idea how drastic the changes I'd have to
make would be, to change the mouse.

 I'd appreciate it if you could cc: me any responses, 'cos i don't read
this group much..



1. Evaluation pointers: x86-Solaris vs x86-NT vs SPARC-Solaris

We are trying to come up with a division-wide standard for workstations
(a mix of engineering applications as well as office-productivity apps).
We realize that we will always need high-end UNIX workstations for
visualization, CFD, CAE, etc....this standard is for the middle-of-the
road requirements.  The choice has boiled down to that specified in
the subject line.

Can anybody point me to web pages, ftp-sites, etc where I can find
info  (honest-to-god evaluations, opinions, reports, benchmark results)
on the above subject?  

If you have experiences (maybe opinions as well) please let me know.  This
has the potential of quickly degenerating into a long UNIX-machine vs PC
battle (I'm a long time Sun fan)....BUT I'D LIKE TO FOCUS ON ISSUES LIKE
performance, capability, drawbacks, cost. etc.
