    Ok, so the new iBook got here Monday -- and I must say I'm very impressed. I haven't really been using an Apple in a long time, so I had my doubts as to how easy it was going to be -- but I was very wrong. So far I find the iBook much easier to use than my old WinXP machine.

    I do have one question though - and I'm sure it's been answered somewhere else, but a quick search didn't uncover anything... so here goes. I've got my Microsoft Intellimouse plugged in, but I can't figure out how to configure the 4th and 5th buttons for anything other than Exposé. The "intuitive" place for me to look was under Applications->System Preferences->Keyboard & Mouse -- but I don't see it there. Perhaps I'm missing the obvious.. otherwise, help is appreciated. Thanks!

    - Jim

    You might want to try Microsoft's control panel software for it, that should do the trick. And welcome to the mac community :)

    Welcome back to Apple. I can only imagine what went through your head during the take-it-out-of-the-box-set-it-up-in-no-time-and-explore experience. Nice, isn't it? ;)

    You can do this (and obviously did it) in the Exposé control panel in System preferences.
