I have taken a definite liking to the newer style Apple keyboard. On the whole, this keyboard works just fine OTB on Vista. But some of the special keys, media ones for instance, do not. This guide introduced me to an amazing little program: SharpKeys. Once you run it, you can select a key (or press a button and then press the key to map), and map that to another key in the list (or again press a button and then press the key to map). So in a few clicks, I had F7-F12 remapped to what I wanted, wrote that to the registry, and voila. You can also remap whatever else you want, of course, like switching the command/Windows key and alt, if you are so inclined.
