Logitech diNovo Mini keyboard lacks F-keys

I thought the Logitech diNovo Mini keyboard would be a perfect keyboard to keep in my basement rack for occasional maintenance activities on my Linux and vSphere servers. Turns out the diNovo Mini lacks F keys. Not even Fn-[number] will send the correct keycode. What a disappointment. The larger (but still small) diNovo Edge has function keys, but is far less suited to be left in a dusty environment like a basement rack.
Does anyone else know of a better solution ?
