Angry keys not working on freedom netbook under ubuntu netbook remix

i want to install unr on my freedom netbookas a dual boot with xp. the problem i have is when i boot from the live installer the wifi does not work or the webcam. under xp you have to press fn+F2 key for wifi and fn+F1 for webcam, these two key combinations do not work with unr is there any way round this problem or would i have to get an external wifi modem.

the netbook is a virgin mobile branded freedom with intel atom 1.6 processor 1g of ram and 160g hardrive.

any help would be appreciated thank you
