Keyboard shortcut to insert into cell in MS Excel (2008) on a Mac?

In Windows, F2 will put the cursor at the end of a cell's text. What's the keyboard shortcut to do this on a Mac?

Short answer, Control+U.

In Mac, F2 is assigned to cut the contents of the current cell.

With a bit of help from a third-party program, you can make F2 to edit the current cell in Excel (2004 or 2008) on the Mac.
