Well, I don't think there are any scroll-wheel options for an Ultra2,
since there's no way to get USB into it.  The best you're going to be
able to get is the Type 6 "Crossbow" mouse, which I think is
significantly more comfortable than the Type 5 mouse.  However, the Type
5 keyboard is worlds better than the flimsy junk in the Type 6.  A Type
5 keyboard will work just fine with a Type 6 mouse, and I think that'd
make you quite happy.
