Looks like you're using a keyboard with "extra" keys (media keys, volume 
controls etc) that haven't been mapped to anything.  There are a number of 
ways to map keys to certain functions.  Have a look in your keyboard 
configuration for Xorg and/or keyboard mappings for Gnome/KDE.  If you want 
to get down and dirty with Xorg, have a look into xmodmap (man xmodmap).

Cheers,

James
