    So I just got Tiger installed on my G4 iBook, and one little thing is really bugging me. The eject button is the same as F12, so in order to use Dashboard, you have to hold down the fn button as you hit F12. I know that you can switch which button triggers Dashboard, but I don't really want to do that. I think F12 is the perfect place. But I was wondering if it was possible to make it so that you hold down fn to eject and F12 triggers Dashboard without it. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks for the response. That's pretty nifty, although now I have to hold down the fn key to change the Brightness and Volume...

    I guess it's either one or the other. Oh well. I guess I'll try both and see what works best. But if anyone else has any good ideas, I'd love to hear them.

    Damn, I just found this thread. I guess I should really know by now to search before posting...
