Exclamation Problems with CRTL + ALT + 1,2...etc buttons

I have a Dell comp with Windows XP and i installed Fedora 14. Installation went find however i tried to access the command line with CRTL + ALT + 2 and nothing would work. I read that on windows keyboards the F light has to be either engaged or disengaged for the CRTL + Alt + buttons to work. I tried that and i couldn't get it to work, does anyone have any input. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

You need to press ctrl + alt + f2 not ctrl + alt + 2

Sorry for the error in my post. I meant to say F2 F3 F4 etc not just the number 2 or 3. Using any one of those should change to the different command lines but they don't for some reason.
