I am going to order

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

    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
