I have a dell laptop that switches the vga output signal between the internal and external monitor when I hit function-F8 under Windows XP.

Is there a way to accomplish the same switching under Linux?

Most function keys I've encountered don't require an OS to use - their functions are hard wired, and will produce the same result under any OS. Now, whether or not Linux will crash when it receives the command is a different story...but I'm sure it won't be that bad.
