You definately want a usb optical mouse.  The optical mice track much 
better and do not need cleaning out like the ball inflicted ones.  The 
optical mouse works on almost any surface (it does not work well on 
glass).  I suggest usb for the faster performance and tracking that it 
gives you.  I have been using a Micro$haft mouse and it actually works 
really well.

I ordered a Kensington optical mouse for a coworker and she likes it 
alot.  Logitech also has an optical mouse.

The key is does it work under linux?  I do not have the M$ working in 
debian yet.
