Laptop install - use mouse or touch pad?

Hi everyone,

I'm about to install Mandrake 9.2 on my laptop. When I do the installation should I be using the touch pad or the USB mouse? I want to be able to use both, but not sure which is easier to configure post-install. Or maybe Mandrake takes care of this automatically??

Its really your choice, most of the time either will be detected and work. My laptop most distros allow me to use both at the same time.
