Question One Last "Old Computer" Question

I recieved 2 computers today. Both work. Both have Win 95.
The one in question has a 5 pin keyboard input but NO mouse input.
There is a 9 pin male connector on the back. Is this for a mouse? Will an adapter work to make a "normal" mouse work with this?

Thanks again,

We decide which is right and which is an illusion

my guess is that the keyboard would be an AT keyboard. you will probably need a serial mouse.
