My search with the same word wielded pretty much everything needed and also 
the correct keys for the 15" and such.
If you have a 17" atleast the 5,7. None of the keytables I found were correct, 
if this is the case. Send me a note and I'll include my mappings ( the same 
as in OSX, since I dont like the normal qwerty x86 layout keys).
