Special keys and Gnome 2.2 keyboard shortcuts

I did a bit of research how one defines special function keys on newer
XFree86, and found that it is these days a rather simple matter (see
I've done this. Now my problem is how under Gnome 2.2 (RH9) one binds
these key presses to events in the window manager (program start etc.)
Under the Red Hat menu, I find Preferences/Keyboard Shortcuts which is
obviously intended to be used for this, but something is wrong since
the help tells me:
To add a hot key, perform the following steps:
1. Click Add. A Custom Binding dialog is displayed.
But I have no "add" in the whole kbd shortcuts thing which to click,
nor anything to bring up a "Custom Binding" visible. Am I just somehow
goofing up here, can anyone help me in figuring out what am I missing?
Please reply by email, I'll summarize into these same newsgroups.
