Right Click on iBook G4

I noticed that my girlfriend's new MacBook can right click if you tap the trackpad with two fingers. Is there anyway to do this on an iBook? The app sidetrack, which covers alot of trackpad functions, does not seem to have the ability.

I don't really need it that much, as I use the CTRL key,but I thought it would be cool.

Well I think the latest version of Mac OS X might enable that feature on your laptop. But if it doesn't, you could check out iScroll (which I use on my PowerBook G4 1.33Ghz to enable that feature). However, I am not sure if iScroll supports your Mac, so I would check the site out to make sure before installing.

Edit: You don't post at FutureMark by any chance?

If you want a free alternative to Sidetrack, check out the program iScroll2. It adds the two finger click ability similar to the last generation 'books had and the MacBooks have.
