Say I've got 5 files, and I'd like to select just two of them. In Windows I would select file 1, then press Control, and then click file 5.

How could this be done in Mac Os X?

Use cmd + click if you are using a Mac keyboard or use the Windows-key + click if you are using a PC keyboard.

You'll do the same thing by doing Command+Click.
