Question: How can I disable the function key settings that trigger Expose in Mac OS X Panther (10.3)?

F9 makes ALL windows currently open shrink to a smaller size so you can click on the one you want to use. F10 does the same thing, but just for Application windows. F11 moves all open windows to the edge of the screen to show the desktop.
