makes sense but doesn't seem to like me  ;-(

[[email protected] ~]$ ls -al ~/.Xmodmap
-rw-rw-r-- 1 craig craig 220 2009-01-21 06:00 /home/craig/.Xmodmap

[[email protected] ~]$ cat .Xmodmap
keycode 160 = XF86AudioMute
keycode 174 = XF86AudioLowerVolume
keycode 176 = XF86AudioRaiseVolume
keycode 223 = XF86Standby
keycode 239 = XF86KbdBrightnessDown
keycode 123 = XF86KbdBrightnessUp
keycode 210 = XF86Display

[[email protected] ~]$ dumpkeys|grep 123
keycode 123 =

[[email protected] ~]$ dumpkeys|grep 174
keycode 174 =

This is after creating ~/.Xmodmap and logging out and logging back in.
Went a step further and rebooted - same.
