*Here* is where you use xev. :)
Fire it up in X and hit those keys to see if they generate anything.
Then you can use xmodmap as Peter demonstrated to map those keys to
generate a keysym of some description, and then map those keysyms in
your window manager to do things.
If the keys don't generate anything under xev, go thou to Google and
search for your keyboard, and see if there's some kind of driver or
userland utility to see the extra keys...
