Same place as ever. Right under ins/help, next to end.

I don't know about the PC notebooks, but the powerbooks don't have one. Of

used on macs. So this is understandable.

Most pro users will have replaced their keyboards with the larger
keyboard. The larger part of the non-powerbook folks will have it.
Anyway, I recall forward delete being shift-backspace in macos on those
keyboard, and I even recall using that. Oddly, when I just tried it, it
didn't work. I'm guessing it's an option somewhere.
