Keyboard layout problem with Fedora 11

Hi everyone, I'm still new with fedora. I've got an old Lenovo Thinkpad T40 from a friend, and installed Fedora 11 on it. My problem is, i cound't set the right keyboard layout. Every keys are correct, except for "fn" key - the function key, which i need to enable bluetooth and wlan. I tried almost every keyboard layouts for IBM but it didn't work. Can someone help me to solve this problem.

I'm no expert here, but it doesn't seem that anyone else is, so here goes! Does your Fn key work with the other things it's supposed to do? If it's just not working with wireless, then you've just not got the necessary drivers. If the key is dead, then I think that's a hardware problem: keys labeled Fn are usually hardwired, rather than generating a scancode for the computer to process.
