Re: fn keys in FX270

Hi Mark,
	Thanks for the quick reply.

	I just went in console and I didn't get any error messages in the
kernel. Although, when I hit FN+F5, I did get a list of FN functions
that are supported by the laptop and my cdrom did eject when I came
across FN+F10. Although my sound keys don't work.
