I'm using the Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad. All the F keys (F1, F2, F3 etc.) have special functions, for example play/pause audio, volume control, etc. (on a sidenote, is there a way to get the brightness buttons to work?). This is great, but I still want to be able to access the real F keys, i.e. F7 not FX86AudioPrev. The Apple Keyboard with the Numeric Keypad doesn't have a "fn" key, but what I'm wondering is, is there a way to globally use a modifier key such as right shift for example to make the F keys do this?

Thanks.
