creating keyboard shortcuts

Hi. I am trying to create a keyboard shortcut in gnome that will launch an application.

In applications, preferences, keyboard shortcuts, you can assign keys to tasks, but there is a set list of tasks.

I want to be able, for example to make the F5 key launch xkill.
but I dont know how to add new shortcuts.

This quick guide has the step by step. You may need to install gconf-editor first, if you don't already have it:

yum -y install gconf-editor
