so i purchased an i book off of ebay last week got it in today. its an iBook g3 with 600mhz prosessor and i just put 256mb more ram in. it works great and im totaly happy with it. i had never used an apple before (except the old ones i used to play oregon trail on back in elementry school) so i have no idea what im doing. i wanted to try it out and already find os x easy to use. however i have no idea how to get the thing online. i want to get the airport card and base but for now i just wanted to plug it in and get it online. any sugestions on how i can do this? thanks for the help

Yep just plug it in and your iBook should configure itself automatically

the only other thing i cant figure out is, what takes the place of the right click on the mouse? like if you want to copy something, or save a picture, or right click and delete something. other than this i have prety much found everything i have been looking for with the iBook. i think my pc will start collecting dust now.

I believe it's ctrl+click. At least in Safari it is.

yup, control + click is a sytem wide tool, its menu changes depending on the app your in, and some apps install their own contextual menu, which is the menu you get when you control click

You can also plug in a 2 or 3 button mouse, and right-click with that like on a pc.
