I have a compaq laptop with a synaptic touchpad and two buttons, i dual
boot to windows xp and Fedora Core 4.
Under both operating systems, pressing both buttons at the same time
simulates the middle mouse!
I'm not sure why it wont do it on your computer in windows. Maybe get
an alternative driver? or use the standard Microsoft Driver. I do
believe (but not for sure) that the basic Microsoft driver will still
allow the touchpads scroll regions to work.
