How do I make the "Fn" key usable on Debian Etch?

I just installed Debian Etch (it's my first time with Debian so please be gentle) andd I noticed that the Fn+F3 and Fn+F4 do not work as shortcuts to decrease and increase my volume although Fn+F6 and Fn+F7 work as shortcuts for changing my laptop screen's brightness (I guess the brightness shortcuts are platform independent).

How do I make the Fn keys usable on Debian Etch?

How about trying to disable it in your bios configuration?
