AFAIK, you cant if its a PS/2 mouse.
Serial rodents allow you to hot swap, but I cant remember the reason why
PS/2 ones dont. I think its because with a serial mouse the serial port has
the IRQ and with PS/2 its handled a bit differently.

My mouse was farting around the place so I swapped it
for a new one (same model) during a linux session and
I couldn't get the the shagging thing working. Ended
up rebooting. How can I avoid this in future?
