Default Marquee select in Lion with trackpad

So is there a way to marquee select with a trackpad in Lion? I can't seem to find it and it's bugginh me!

With a mouse obviously it's right-click and drag, but on the track pad the equivalent of a right-click is tapping with two fingers. Dragging two fingers zooms in/out. Am I missing something obvious here?

Click drag with 2 fingers works for me.

have you tried customising the mouse modifiers to suit?

I'm on MacBook Pro,10.6.8, using trackpad and have my left drag set to marquee. See attached screenshot.

Click drag with 2 fingers does work if I actually click the trackpad down, just find that quite a clumsy action because i'm used to just tapping. I will explore the mouse modifiers and see what other options there are.
