    With the MB or MBP, Windows doesn't recognize tapping the trackpad. So the double-tap which works in OS X won't help you. Also, you can't single-tap to replace clicking the trackpad button, either.

    To right-click in WinXP, you can either ctrl+click or, using only the trackpad, press the trackpad button while touching the trackpad itself with TWO fingers simultaneously. In other words, it's like the two-finger click in OS X but you also have to press the trackpad button at the same time.

    When you say "clicking the trackpad" what do you mean?

    You cannot tap the trackpad to get a "click" in WinxP. You have to put two fingers on the trackpad (as if you were going to do the two-finger scroll) and then while touching the trackpad with both fingers, also click the button below the trackpad.
