TIP: Terminal on ctrl-alt-s

Open a terminal (as a user)
Use the following command:

/opt/gnome/bin/gconftool-2 -t string -s /apps/metacity/global_keybindings/run_command_3 "my hotkey"
/opt/gnome/bin/gconftool-2 -t string -s /apps/metacity/keybinding_commands/command_3 "gnome-terminal"

replace "my hotkey" by < c t r l > < a l t > s

Another way is to:
Start gconf-editor, go to apps > metacity > global_keybindings. Locate the run_command part. The first one is already taken, so we'll add our key to run_command_2. This is where We'll enter key name we got from xev earlier here. Simply click where it says disabled and enter your key instead. Still using the right windows key, here's an illustration:
