Lenovo ThinkPad: Swap Fn and Ctrl Keys

When I try to Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V on a Lenovo ThinkPad, I found myself keep hitting Fn instead of Ctrl, which is really annoying. I will probably get used to it if I use it long enough. But I do not want to adopt this weird, non-standard keyboard layout. Lucky their newer version of BIOS provides an option to swap the Fn and Ctrl key.

1. boot into BIOS
2. goto Config -> Keyboard/Mouse (may vary depending on the BIOS version)
3. enable Fn and Ctrl Key swap
4. save and exit

I was a little bit worry because the Ctrl key is larger than the Fn key (now only if I can swap the actual keys), but so far I have not (yet) press the wrong key :)
