trouble with data switch box 2 computers

i have a data switch box hooked up to two computers

when i use the switch (part: HD15/DB9/DIN5-2) to go from the windoze box to the linux box (suse 8.2)

the mouse "flips out" and not until i log off suse and then log on does it correct itself

the windoze box has no trouble with the mouse when switching back and forth

funny tho when i installed the data switch windoze said it found new hardware etc.

so is there a driver for this type of device?

thanks for any help!
