Default Kyeboard lay-out bottom row left of space bar - 12-08-2010, 11:18 PM

Just picked up a nicely used Mini 9 and Removed & Replaced the SSD with a Super Talent FEM 16 GFDL and then installed OSX. Everything working fine with the Mini. Am switching from PC to MAC this year and would like to map the keyboard of the 10V & Mini 9, comparing it to my old laptop that I'm giving away. I'm especially interested in resouce(s) and information regarding the bottom row of the mini 9 key board as it relates to a standard osx keyboard?
These are the four I need to compare with pc:
ctrl= fn = windows logo= alt=

Mini 10v/1GB RAM/160GB HD/ BIOS A06/SL 10.6.6
Mini 9 /2GB RAM/ 16GB SSD/BIOS A05/SL 10.6.6
OSX Installation via USB & Mac

Fn key allows you to use the keys that are labeled in blue, the brightness, volume, F keys (F11 and F12 are Fn+z and Fn+x btw), etc. Some of them don't function as intended since you have Hackintoshed the mini 9, the wireless key with the tower for instance won't turn off the wireless connection as it would in XP.

The Alt key would be the same as the Apple key.

The Windows key would be Alt now.

Not sure about the Ctrl key, but if I push it and the #4 key my browser (Firefox) jumps to the top of the page, and Ctrl and #9 jumps me to the Contact Us page for this site, for whatever that is worth, lol.
