Selecting faces you use keys U and Y.

U, is for directly selecting visible faces in raycast mode.
Y, is used by draging a selction box, which selects all the faces inside that area, including back facing one.

Hope that's what ya after.

Also reading the manual is a good idea.

AFAIK there is a preference in xsi 4 to select (also) backfaces when in raycast mode, but canīt check that out since Iīm still on 3,51 sorry....
