Multimedia keyboard

I m using a a multimedia keyboard (one having additional keys e.g. for video players, mute on/off etc).
These keys work fine with the so called famous operating system without any additonal driver.
How they can work with my linux system??? as they are not functioning now... (RedHat 9, 2.4.14-8)
