Same keyboard. It doesn't have an Fn key, just F1, F2, ... F12. I can't get 
into text mode; alt-ctrl-F1 doesn't work.

I can get an X session on darner with startx; it gives me a minimal window 
manager. alt-ctrl-F1 works on darner while in X.

Don't buy a French car in Holland. It may be a citroen.
