This may well have been asked before but I wanted to know how do I program the F13 to F16 on the Apple Keyboard(wired). I want two of them to be able to dim and brighten my display as I use the keyboard with my Powerbook. I am running the latest Tiger.

There are various utilities you could use to do this...
But with my iBook and external wireless keyboard, F14 dims and F15 brightens anyway?

Have you tried them?

Butler is one I think, I personally use Quicksilver as a launcher / hotkey assigner.
Google / versiontracker.com will help you find them
