Keyboard/Keypad problems


I have a Cortron keyboard with a keypad (F13-F22) connected to my Linux system. I tried using xev and showkeys to check if the X server can recognize all of the available keys. But there are many keys that they couldn't detect. Is there a way (adding X Extension to XFree86, or editing/changing some scripts) that I can get the X server to recognize all of my keys?
