Open Finder Info (see RAM) without a mouse?

I finally got a boot disk for my Mac SE but I don't have a mouse yet (being shipped).  I've been trying to figure out what RAM I have installed so I'm wondering if there's any way I can open the Finder Info window WITHOUT a mouse?

Have you tried cmd-I? Might need to make sure no icons are selected...

About this Macintosh

The window that shows the installed memory (in System 7) is called About This Macintosh. There is no keyboard equivalent.

However, System 7 also has a feature called Mouse Keys that may allow you to move the cursor with only the keyboard. You activate it by tapping the option key five times. Then the numeric keypad keys will move the mouse around and the 5 will click. This feature requires a control panel called "Easy Access".

Finally got a mouse so I was

Finally got a mouse so I was able to find what I needed (it came with the upgrade to 4MB RAM!).  I only had a diskette for 6.0.8 so these ideas wouldn't have helped unfortunately.  Thanks everyone!
