Is it possible that your buttons are the same as those "internet keyboard"
buttons which many desktop users are having to put up with now?  (eek,

If so:

I found a reference on sourceforge to something calling itself akdaemon,
apparently a userland daemon to invoke "the fun keys" by accessing a dev
node offered by the complementary kernel patch.  However the homepage 
for the mentioned patch is not live :(  with any luck maybe it is in 2.4x
anyway?  and all you should need is the userland daemon.  Geez.  Good thing
it's source code - these docs don't say anything useful like whether
/dev/action_keys is character (you'd think) or block, what major and minor.

The example keyboard he mentions is a "Logitech Freedom Pro" - obviously
not a laptop.  

Freshmeat mentions a daemon called HotKeys which is supposed to listen
for those multimedia keys.  Best of all its author cooked up a debian
package :>   http://ypwong.org/hotkeys/hotkeys_0.5.1_i386.deb

Best I could do on short notice, let us know if it helps!
