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.

you need to either highlight or place the mouse over whatever you want to right click and then press shift and F10 together
