Program key to act as click

I am going to order http://www.naturalpoint.com/trackir/

Is there a way I can program keys to work as the left and right mouse buttons?

I am using RHEL 4 with the gnome desktop

Thanks

the main tool for doing key mappings is loadkeys
  man loadkeys
other like setxkbmap, xmodmap, xev and xkeycaps may help you finding the rioght keycode
The main problem is to find a program which can simulate the mouse click (sorry I don't know of any, probably xbindkeys), then use this program in the mapping tables for loadkeys
