    In Mac OS go to System Preferences > Keyboard & Mouse and about 2/3rd's of the way down check "For secondary clicks, place two fingers on the trackpad then click the button". It should carry over to Windows. The Mac trackpad doesn't recognize tapping.

    i forgot about the 2 finger + click = right click. it works good. perhaps even better then having 2 buttons. wierd tapping doesnt work though since tapping works in osx. you can even scroll in windows with 2 fingers.

    ok fun is over. whole point i got a mac was to learn some unix. time to reboot =P
