For redhat 9 , find and install "acme". Get it from - this will add multimedia keys support. In future it will be integrated with gnome.

I was about to say that it was MICROSOFT for crying out loud! Did you really expect it to work outside of Windows? Also, I wonder if they'll start doing it with KDE as well.
