    Anyway to change the functionality of the 2nd enter key on my PB (right next to the space bar) to being a control button? basically so I can control click with one hand (comfortably)... I searched the forums for it, couldn't find anything...

    I've used that tutorial on my 12" PB to change the Enter key to Option. Worked perfectly.

    Sounds like something that uControl would be able to do. Great little utility, and free. Only problem is, it appears some people are having problems getting it to work with Tiger.

    Alright... read through that tutorial... did a spotlight search for the file, doesn't show up... the kext file shows up, but i can't open it... if i put that fil epath in terminal, it says I don't have permission.... don't have much experience in terminal/hacking stuff... anyone who could lead me through it step by step? if not, no big whoop....

    Drag the file out of the Finder window and place it somewhere as a backup. Then, do the same thing again, only drag the file to your desktop. You now how two backups of the file, but you'll be changing one in a second. Okay, open the file on the desktop in TextEdit. Do the necessary changes and save. Now, drag this file back into the original Finder window with the original file. You'll be asked if you want to replace the existing file, say yes. You'll have to authenticate with your password. You're done.
