Depends... :-)

By default those keys do things like change screen (and keyboard) brightness, sound level, etc., and you've got to press the fn key to get them to work as function keys. You can switch this behavior, default to the function keys and use fn to get the other behavior, by checking off `System Preferences->Keyboard->Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys' (in OS X 10.6 --- other locations, e.g., Keyboard & Mouse, in earlier OS versions). I use this setting because I rarely want to change those settings and most often want the function keys.

Good Luck,
