Is it possible to use a couple of the "F" keys for volume control?

    I was just wondering if this is at all possible. If you are wondering what i am talking about, i want something like what i have on my Pro Keyboard (it has volume keys, and the eject key).

    I know that on the older computers, with OS X or maybe with OS 9 too, F12 functions as your eject key. But, i want to know if there is away to do this for the volume as well. If it is possible, how would i go about doing this, would i have to program something?

    in os x, f3 is volume down by default, and f4 is volume up. (at least in my experiance any way)

    On my PB, F5 turns the volume up, F4 turns it down, and F3 mutes/unmutes the sound.

    In Panther, if you go into the control panel, and click on keyboard & mouse, there is a tab called "Keyboard shortcuts", you mightbe able to add it in there.
