if you have extjs, you can do it with this way:

        info = new OpenLayers.Control.WMSGetFeatureInfo({
            url: '', 
            title: 'Identify features by hover',
            layers: [layer],
            hover: true,              
            formatOptions: {
                typeName: 'layer', 
                featureNS: ''
            queryVisible: true

"getfeatureinfo", this, showWaitCursor);

        function showWaitCursor(){
            Ext.util.CSS.updateRule('div.olMap', 'cursor', 'wait')

i hope it helps you....
