    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.
