F-keys in Boot Camp
Hi folks...

for some reason, my f-keys don't work in Win XP pro on boot camp (latest beta).

Mac Pro, latest OS.

(PS: newbie mac-head here...please be kind ;)

Do you have a Macbook? If so, you need to use the Fn key in tandem with the F-keys. This is because, by default, the keys are set to do their alternate function (volume up/down, brightness up/down) by default when struck. You can change this setting in System Preferences if you prefer that they act as normal Function keys, and do the alternate function with the Fn key instead.
