Are there really compatibility problems with modern USB mice compared to old ones? I haven't seen that before, but maybe current production Logitech mice are even more broken than they appear on modern computers (even compared to a 10-year-old mouse of the same model).
You really should just use the onboard USB 1.0/1.1 ports for a USB mouse. On the VIA USB card that I have, even plugging in a mouse causes a huge performance drop and extremely high CPU usage on my socket 7 board. I don't have that problem with onboard USB.
