Default optical ps2/serial mouse

Hi there!

I'm looking for a decent optical ps2/serial mouse.

I try to use 2 PCs with a KVM switch so I only need one mouse, one monitor
and one keyboard.

The problem is that the switch only supports PS/2 mice. One of the PCs I'm
using has a serial mouse port, so there the problem starts.

I'm currently using an MS optical USB/PS2 mouse which works with my main PC
but not with the old one. The mouse is not serial compatible so even using a
PS2 - Serial adapter doesn't work.

So I'm either looking for a way to connect my USB/PS2 mouse with the Serial
port (I'd prefer that solution because I really like my mouse), or a decent
serial/ps2 optical mouse (preferably MS, because I got used to the ergonomic

Thanks for any help.
