I am running YDL on a beige G3/233, Machine ID 510, ROM version $77D.40F2

I have tried giving the kernel adb=1, left & right ctrl, opt, & cmd with
mouseclick, and permutations of those modifiers.
I have tried the "clear", "=", and many other keys.
I've tried all the function keys.
I tried xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 128 130" in the hopes I could get F1 & F2 to
work as middle and right mouse buttons, respectively.

No luck so far.

Any recommendations on what a good multi-button mouse would be to get?
