    Yes. You can install a application called "xbindkeys" (get if from freshmeat.net) that, well the name says it all, bind your keys to certian commands. Like, the audio button can be used to start up xmms etc.

    Just ask if you need any more help.

    Good luck

    This was recently discussed in a semi-related topic:

    There may be some things to help you in that topic, as well.
