What type of SpaceBall do you have?

To get the dialbox working I had to:
- read input(7)
- install eoe.sw.optinput (It's a subpackage on the Installation Tools
  or Foundation 1 CD, can't remember.)
- reboot (possibly, can't remember)
- install a serial device with SerialDeviceManager(1m). (Toolchest,
  System Manager, Hardware and Devices, Add a Serial Device)
- reboot (Sure about that this time. ;-) )
- ensure that the module according to input(7) is loaded
  (run "ml list")
- run confidence(1m) test. (/usr/sbin/confidence)
Should be the same for the SpaceBall.

Well. There are other nice things like a PDP-8 and the famos
cary-cyber.org project.
