Using hot keys in linux

I have a Mercury PS/2 keyboard that includes power and sleep buttons. It would be great to be able to utilize these since I have to open the front of my case in order to get to the power button. Does anyone know how I can get these buttons to work?

Also, not sure if they work in Windows or right now I just have Red Hat 9. Thanks for your input.
