Hmmm, if this machine still has an ADB keyboard (vs. USB), then you
cannot change the Fn behaviour. It's only possible on USB keyboards.

Check your logs or stop pommed and run pommed -f and you should see an

If only the backlight keys work, then they're handled by the kernel on
its own. If other keys work too, then something else is running,
either pbbuttonsd or some GNOME stuff via HAL.
