How would i go about remapping the volume function keys on an old white apple keyboard to match the sequence order of the macbook's volume keys?

what i mean is how can i remap the volume keys above the numpad so they are used in this order: mute, volume down, volume up like on the macbooks for F17, F18, F19 respectively instead of volume down, volume up, mute like on the old white apple keyboards for F17, F18, F19 respectively. if it is possible i would then just switch the volume keycaps around to match the mapping.

i found this article about modifying the com.apple.symbolichotkeys.plist to change the exposé and dashboard keys link. it says near the bottom that it may be possible to remap the volume keys but the author did not know the values... **** so close! does anyone know the values for the volume keys or know of any other way to change them?

thanks for reading and i look forward to reading your replies.
QUOTE Thanks
