Virtual PC 2004 Release Mouse from virtual machine console

I have installed Ubuntu Dapper on Virtual PC 2004, and am pretty happy. It is much faster than running a Windows XP guest on VMWare with Ubuntu Dapper as a host :P (Comparing apples to oranges, I imagine). One thing that I don’t like about Virtual PC is that you have to hit the right “alt” key to release the mouse from the virtual machine console… Yikes! I am right-handed, so I am holding the mouse with my right hand and have to reach over with my left hand to hit the right “alt” key. I am hoping there is a way to create an alternative key combination, ala ctrl-alt in VMWare…
