I'd be interested in this one too.  I bought a new Spaceball back in '96 to use with 3DSMAX 1.0 and
it has yet to see any use other than playing with the demos.  A dual PPro 200 w/ Matrox card wasn't
enough to effectively rotate geometry any more complex than Utah teapot.

I've been contemplating putting the Spacball on my Octane but have yet to do so.
