Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm going to guess that "next" is a preset used by page down
You can most likely undo this by removing the line from .fluxbox/keys
I did some messing around and got it working with my Logitech keyboard.
You know how to find the keycode already, so I won't go into that.
will tell you where the keysym list is...this is a list Linux uses for your keysym names. Istead of using "Next", pick one of those for your key name. Here's what I have in my .Xmodmap:
I put "None XF86Music :ExecCommand xmms" in .fluxbox/keys, restarted the X server, and my "Media" button now launches xmms
I don't know how I'm going to set up the volume/mute buttons yet, but it'll happen...
(I only don't know how unmute, so I get the volume I was )
Good luck with it!
I'm using Alsa, so I don't know if that would work. I found something in amixer that works anyway:
None XF86AudioMute :ExecCommand amixer -q set Master toggle # mute toggle
None XF86AudioRaiseVolume :ExecCommand amixer -q set Master 1+
None XF86AudioLowerVolume :ExecCommand amixer -q set Master 1-
Thanks for the nudge into something I've been meaning to check out for months...I've learned a bit, and I discovered I don't have to download and install a 5mb application to get full use out of my keyboard. And on top of that, I can customize it in ways I couldn't with the Windows Logitech software.
