      This works for me in the GUI (Vim.app) but not in the terminal, so
      I assume you are talking about the latter.

      I have a PowerBook too, and I get the <Home> and <End> keys by
      holding down <fn> (extreme lower left of the keyboard) and pressing
      <Left> or <Right>.

      I tried just deleting the "end" and "home" lines from the Window
      Inspector, but that did not help. My daughter is using the Mac now, so
      I cannot experiment further. You might try mapping <End> to <C-O>$ and
      <Home> to <C-O>^ .
