    hey guys, u might have seen me lurking around here recently,
    i am just after buying a pb 15.2 inch 1.25 g4. very first mac ever and i am kinda lost with the keys on the keyboard.
    a really simple question, how to i cycle thro the menus the way i would if i were using windows? (eg alt + f for file) - i am not actuallly a windows users, have been using freebsd for 4 years already and linux for 2 - always said that i would buy a mac if they had a decent OS...

    According to the "Keyboard & Mouse" preference pane, it is ^F2 (ie Ctrl+F2) then just use the arrows as normal. On a PowerBook you may have to hit the "fn" key as well to get the F2 to be recognized.
