I just discovered bootcamp and I'm psyched that I can run Windows 7 RC on the MacBook Pro without using a virtual machine. However the virtual machines run a bit better because they support remapping the MacBook's keyboard. Currently I can't find an equivalent of the delete key (it is Fn + Delete when running Windows via Fusion or Parallels, but it doesn't work on a bootcamp install of Windows)

Has anyone come up with a clever workaround?

You might want to take a look at the Boot Camp Installation & Setup Guide.

Step 3 on Page 14 talks about installing the drivers from the DVD. Also see page 17 for information about using the Mac keyboard in Windows.

You have to install the Mac Keyboard drivers for Windows. I believe they are available on the MacOS DVD.
