No, bus mice do not disable com ports.  This is true specifically for the
Logitech mice, and in general.  The bus mouse card *will* require an interrupt
line (IRQ), but there is a jumper on the card to select which IRQ to use.
If you selected IRQ 4 or 5, it *would* interfer with a com port, but you
can pick one of the other IRQs instead.
