Keyboard Layout on a Laptop (7.10)

I can't get the keyboard layout to work right on my laptop. I just installed Ubuntu version 7.10 on a Gateway MX6454 laptop. I can't get Ubuntu to recognize the fn key. Any help would be much appreciated.

I've got some of the keys to work but I'm still having trouble with one key in particular. I hold down the fn key and then press the up arrow to make the screen brighter or down to make the screen darker. I still can't get this to work.
