    Your request should have been in the wireless forum, but I will try to help you
    here.

    The handling of the fn+f2 key should be handled by the module dell-wmi. Is it
    loaded? The command 'lsmod | grep dell' will provide that info.

    If the module is not loaded, does the command 'sudo /sbin/modprobe -v dell-wmi'
    help? If so, you need to add it to the MODULES_LOADED_ON_BOOT list at YaST =>
    System => /etc/sysconfig Editor. Open System and Kernel.

    If the key does not work with the module loaded, then you need to file a bug
    report at bugzilla.novell.org; however, as your machine is not new, the module
    should work.
