    installed a clean leopard install on my gf's ibook.

    wondering how we can get more advanced scrolling options like i get with my MBP - the choices in syspref on her machine are so limited. is there a 3rd party option that can do this?

    also, i'm assuming we will be able to install iphoto from her original 10.3 cds?

    thanks!

    You can do it with Sidetrack; that's what I used on my iBook. Since you're using a G4, I think there's a program called iScroll or something like that that also works.

    Eek, Leopard on an iBook? Good luck...

    Is it a G3 or G4?

    The 1.33 G4 ibook has 2 finger scrolling & right click abilities built in to Leopard. If she has an older one, you'll need iScroll or something.

    odd - after running software update the scrolling choices appeared in syspref. very weird!

    thanks...

    Runs fine on mine. And yeah, the scroll pad only has the two finger scrolling option.
