Yes you can change the hand like aardvark mentioned, but yea, it only works
in IE4+. To do this:

<img src="yourimagerollover.gif" onmouseover="this.style.cursor='default'">

I am assuming though you would have to add that onmouseover action to your
rollover script or put it somewhere.

of all CSS attributes IE supports, including the ones they have sumbitted
for being added to the standard.
