Hi, Paulo and John --
Funny this should come up. I just did this last night on an iBook G3.
To add to what Paulo said, John:
-- You need to edit /etc/sysctl.conf as root and not as a regular user
(I found that out the hard way :-/ )
-- To just get a right button, you can just add
dev/mac_hid/mouse_button_emulation = 1 and that should do the trick
for a right button.
-- If you're using a mouse, the center and right mouse buttons should
work without having to push F11 or F12. However, if you have an iBook,
you'll have to use those buttons (unless, of course, you have a mouse
connected to it). The mouse buttons should work.
[Also, should it be dev/mac_hid/mouse_button_emulation = 1 with /
instead of a . ? Does it matter, Paulo, if there are . or / in the
edit to /etc/sysctl.conf? ]
Let me know how you do.
Let me add, too, that Fedora 9 on the PowerPC platform rocks!

dev.mac_hid.mouse_button_emulation = 1
dev.mac_hid.mouse_button2_keycode = 87
dev.mac_hid.mouse_button3_keycode = 88
F11 and F12 should act as 2nd and 3rd button now.
