Two mice on one system ???

My wife and I both use our PC which is fitted with a standard mouse. She has problems, due to health, using this mouse. At her place of work she uses a mouse that has a ball on the top that she just roles about to move the page. Is there any way of attaching two mice to the PC, so that we can both use our preferred method, without having to keep re-connecting them. I am using XP Pro.
Thanks

I have a wireless mouse and just as a test, I plugged in a USB mouse as well and they both work ok. Have you rried it to see if it will work?
