Compaq Armada 7400 Keyboard

Hi all,
I'm running Slackware 9.0 (Kernel 2.4.20) on my Compaq Armada 7400. I want to make my Print Screen button work (accesed by going Fn+Insert) under KDE/Gnome/Anything. When I'm trying to assign the shortcut, I hit Alt+Fn+Insert, but just Alt+Insert shows up. What map do I need to set?
Thanks, Taj

Funtion Buttons.. "Fn" do not normally work in linux. If you want printscreen your going to have to use X-screengrab. If you want your buttons to work, their might be a FN utility to install, just google it with your laptop model and see if anyone else has tried before you.

Actually, I found how to fix it (and it wasen't google! ). Anyway, I read the PDF from Compaq about the Armada 7400. I should have used the 104 key keyboard. Now it's working :-).
