No, it does absolutely nothing. I've mapped keysyms for a multimedia
keyboard with xmodmap before, so I know what I'm doing there. There's a
linux driver program (http://g15tools.sourceforge.net/) which allows you to
use everything, including the LCD screen on the keyboard. Unfortunately it
requires linux kernel support to work, which obviously I can't give it in
FreeBSD...any ideas? Really keen to just be able to use the extra keys, dont
care about the LCD :-P
