Did you load the psaux module? Using X without a mouse is probably
possible, but I think that how you'd do it would be window manager
specific. So I guess you'd need to read the docs for whatever window
manager you plan on using and see what the key bindings for
different actions are.
If you want to set your desktop to be similar to Windows, take a
look at GNOME (http://www.gnome.org/screenshots/index.shtml) and KDE
(http://www.kde.org/kscreenshots.html). Then decide for yourself. I
think that KDE is more similar to Windows.
