    So I'm a little new to 10.5.

    I'd like to remap my F9-F12 keys (I like them in a certain order).

    Seems simple enough: Preferences/Keyboard and Mouse/Keyboard shortcuts.

    But double clicking, then press a new key doesn't do a thing. What am I doing wrong?

    Click the keyboard button (from the row of 3 at the top of that pref pane)

    Check "F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys"

    It's a little hard to understand exactly what you want

    The pref. pane states:

    "To change a shortcut, double-click the shortcut and hold down the new keys"

    So if I want to reorder F9-F12 (I prefer F9's functions on F10, etc.) how do I do this? By the instructions, I highlight the one I want to change, double click and press the new button. Nothing.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Now I'm afraid I don't know what you mean. Click System Preferences/Keyboard and Mouse/Keyboard? I have no boxes to check or uncheck in that pane.
