Ok, my tips... Basic ones that confused me after switching from Windows:
1. A "Shortcut" in Windows is an "Alias" in OSX. To create a shortcut/alias rightclick on the thing you want to make a shortcut of and click "Make Alias"
2. That outlined up arrow in the shortcuts thing is the Shift key. My iBook G4 just says Shift, doesn't have the arrow on it so took me a little while to figure out why pressing up wasn't working... The little squigly icon that looks like a Z cut off at the ends with some extra lines is the alt/option key (also not labelled on my iBook with the symbol).
Oh and one other thing. If you're looking to do any web design on it and want to install PHP, Apache is pre-installed in OSX. To activate it go to System Preferences>Sharing and enable "Personal Web Sharing". You can now access your Apache server from http://localhost/
I could figure that out, get PHP and MySQL installed and configured but I couldn't figure out the Alt or Shift keys...
