Can anybody recomend a good program for helping me to map
the hot-keys (my-documents, messenger, browser,...) on my
keyboard to suitable linux-applications (probably KDE-apps).

I would also be interested in a similar program for doing
the same for the virtual terminals (non-X), but then
naturaly mapped to non-X applications. If there is a program
that could do both (X and non-X), that would perhaps be

BTW, any HOWTOs or anything that describes how to map
hot-keys to commands out there?
