1. Using middle button on 2-button mouse

I use a 2-button Microsoft mouse with Solaris 2.5.1 for the x86.
I run mainly X windows applications, some of which want
me to access the middle mouse button (which I don't have). Are there
ways around this? Can the middle mouse button be simulated somehow?
