    Swapping Keys in Windows

    Hey Guys,
    Bit of a problem here. My new laptop just arrived today, and so far all is well. The only problem I have is that I tend to use keyboard shortcuts a lot, and the Function key is in the place of the Control key, which is instead on the right of the aforementioned key; I seem to be pressing the wrong button a lot, and was wondering if there's any way within Windows XP to switch the buttons, so that pressing the Function key causes Windows to register 'Control' being pushed instead, and vice-versa.

    Any help would be appreciated. :-)

    the function key is usually interpreted at a BIOS level, so you won't be able to change it
