Dell Multimedia Keyboard (SK-8135) and Windows 7

I just picked up a Dell Multimedia Enhanced keyboard off the 'Bay' for a cheap price and it works fine with Windows 7 but is there anyway to program what the enhanced Multimedia keys do? I know the keyboard is from the XP days and MS released Power Toys (For XP only) that allowed you to change what the enhanced keys did is there anything like that for Windows 7? I tried the Dell site to no avail (all they have is 32 bit XP drivers) So does anyone know of a third party App that will allow me to change what the keys do?
The keyboard is model SK-8135 and it seems a lot of people like this keyboard as I do and I want to get Winamp to recognize the enhanced keys (Play/Pause/Next, Prev Track Stop Etc) It works fine with Windows Media Player but I like to use Winamp for my Primary Music Player
I tried a program called Sharpkeys and that did not work (Said Unrecognized Scan Code, I need to find another program that will tell me the scan codes that each key gives out, Key loger?? as I think the Dell KB uses non standard enhanced key codes)
But It will work with The built in windows programs I want to change what all of the functions do as I don't use most of the default MS programs
Thanks
