 Congratulations - I've been searching for laptop successes on FC2 and
 found few.

I installed FC2 on my IBM Thinkpad 600x last night and the function keys are working here without having to fiddle with anything.

Thats because the kernel detects the bios is too old - and loads APM (not ACPI). And Fn-F4 suspend and other functions work with APM without any extra configuration.
