No, sir, they will not. To find cursors go to here:


Simply drag and drop the .tar.gz file into the Appearance settings, and if it says "Theme Installed" go to customize. If you have any questions, please ask.

Only questions not asked are stupid. But no, I don't think you can use them, but you may find some Vista-like cursors in gnome-look (http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Aero+Mouse+Cursors+with+Drop+Shadow?content=67833) .
