Some ADB keyboards are, but both keys may be mapped to the same keycode in
the kernel driver. Check the source (keyboard_input() in mackeyb.c I
think). The commands needed to switch a keyboard into the proper mode to
send different key codes on left and right keys might be documented
somwhere by Apple, or might hide out in some corner of the kernel source.

Press the keys in the proper order: first the modifier keys, then fn-Fx.

Try adding "auto lo eth0" to /etc/network/interfaces if that's what you
use (used by /etc/init.d/networking)

Work in progress, see linuxppc-dev
