    Hi,
    i'm running snow leopard and windows 7 in boot camp on a macbook pro 13" unibody. I use delete a lot as I use windows for CAD software and pressing fn + backspace is getting annoying. How do I map the backspace key to work as delete and map the eject CD key as backspace?

    cheers

    Thanks,

    works perfect for changing the backspace key to delete but even tho it has a features designed just for the eject key mapping backspace to that didnt work. bit annoying that I can only have one or the other.

    You might want to try an external keyboard like the full-sized Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad. I believe it has backspace and delete, as well as home, end, pg up, pg down.
