Quick Spot Metering?

I read on a website somewhere recently how to assign a two-button press on the E-510 to quickly change to spot metering, but can't find it again (typical). Does anyone know how this can be done?

TIA

I have not used an E-510 but it looks like you can use a different metering pattern such as spot metering when the lock button, [AEL/AFL] is being held down.

Check out Wrotniak's article for details:

I know that wasn't the site, but I'll have a trawl through that and hopefully suss it out. Thanks.
