I have the function key shortcuts specifically for use within Photoshop and created within Photoshop cs5. Identical versions. How do I transfer these settings for my keyboard shortcuts to the new installation? Can I assume it is just copying a file from one to the other? If so, I don't know the file name.

Here's a page describing where all the Photoshop CS5 preferences and settings are stored:

You should be able to copy the files to the corresponding folders on you new machine.

You might also find this helpful. It talks about using the "save as" icon in the keyboard shortcut menu plus a lot of other very handy tips.
