Does original Mbox work with Pro Tools 7.X?

I have an 002R, but I didn't want to bring it to college with me so I was thinking about buying a Mbox. I see a lot of them on eBay with likely registered Pro Tools, but since I already have the software installed on my computer can I just plug in the Mbox and be on my way? If so, is the old Mbox compatible with the latest 7.whatever Pro Tools?

The Original MBox is compatible with 7.x, I'm running an Original MBox with Protools 7.1 on my Mac Mini PPC.

Lives for gear

The original Mbox is indeed compatible, and if you have a version of Pro Tools LE installed you shouldn't have any problems at all with just connecting the Mbox and go. It will ost likely be supported as long as the Mbox 2 and whatever USB interface that Digidesign release after that.

Thanks for the info everyone. I didn't want to pay for the software again if I didn't have to.
