How to change my mouse pointers?

OK I think there should by a way to change the default mouse pointers coming with X. How can I do this? And if it is possible where can I get alternative cursors? And is there an option to change them only for KDE 3.2.2?

try looking in the KDE control panel, and i believe the cursor's can be set by any piece of software made to do it... so it wont be to hard to find one i think? (the question mark is because its hard to find something that is really really really needed that every distros has, but no one seems to offer it off the Internet.. at least its hard to get the sources for

KDE answers that there was an error while loading module: is missing so I can't open the settings for the mouse. No idea what does it mean but I can guess that this means "Forget about mouse settings unless you want to make your life hard".
