Install newer media keyboard on an older Macbook Pro
Authored by: agentx on Nov 01, '10 09:52:02AM

Ok did the re-mapping with this hint and all has worked fine....a bit pissed with Apple that they replaced a US/International keyboard with a UK one leaving the user with all over the place key mapping !

Also here is some info on commands that i found on FunctionFlip source page (great tool) if anyone wants to do funky things with their keys in the future.
