[SWLUG] Keyboard shortcuts in GNOME

Hello again =)
I've installed Mandrake 10.0 Community, thanks to Linux Format shoving
it on the cover, and it's great. It's geared me up to finally get all
the hardware to work properly, and here's where my question heads...
I've got a multimedia keyboard do-dah. I've seen a program called
HotKeys (or something like that) which runs as a daemon and converts
your extra key presses to commands. That's fine but I think it's a touch
of overkill - I don't care if I have an OSD. I saw in Linux Format (not
a bad magazine, except for the masses of spelling and gramatical errors)
the use of xev to get keycodes for the extra keys and give them F-key
labels, which is more my thing. However, the example in there was to map
these keys to do things in KDE. I know lots of people like KDE but I
hate it! I've tried to find an equivalent way of doing it in GNOME but
have, so far, drawn a blank.
Anyone got any ideas, or am I going to have to tinker with HotKeys?
