Most alu powerbooks that were made in the past few years support it as
well, with a third party driver.
See: iScroll2 <http://www-users.kawo2.rwth-aachen.de/~razzfazz/>

I've been using that for the past few months (works both on Panther and
Tiger) and I love it, I can't shake off the habit when I work on my
girlfriends ibook ;)
What I also prefer above uControl is that you can also assign right-click
to two-fingers on pad and click (and the fact that it's (nag)free)

And although it's possible to have horizontal scrolling enabled (or even
circular scrolling) I don't use it, because it's a bit hard to really
move vertical/horizontal with two fingers.
