The volume buttons on my A30p work without any action on my part.  They
appear to be handled by the BIOS or the sound hardware.  They don't send
key events on my system.

On my A30p, the X keycodes are 234 and 233.  You can figure out the
keycodes using the "xev" program.

What version of Windows are you using?  On my A30p, in Windows XP, the
buttons do Back/Forward in IE.
