    I have an old Apple Keyboard that I bought on ebay before they had even the volume on they keyboard. All I want to know is there some way to enable these? I can do F3 and F4 but that is about it. Anyone know of an App or something for this?

    The first thing I thought of when I saw this thread was the option in System Preferences -> Keyboard and Mouse to use F1-F12 as standard function keys. Try toggling that option, if your keyboard lacks a dedicated Function key. Also, if you have a REALLY old Apple USB keyboard, try pressing the Help key + F1 through F12, and see if that does anything interesting.
