Where's the Control Panel?

I'm sitting here working and my eight-year old asks "Dad, where's the control panel?" He's on the iMac G5. I didn't think he could possible be asking about the real control panel, so I asked "why?" He says "the mouse is too slow, I want to speed it up." I showed him where the system preferences are. It blows my mind that my eight year old knows you can change the mouse speed in the control panel.
