You need to run the Gnome-pager applet on your panel, or the task-list
applet will also do it.
(Click on your foot menu, then Panel/Add applet/Utility/Gnome Pager.)

If you want e to handle your iconified windows instead, you'll have to
upgrade to cvs e to get the iconbox.

?? Not sure. Have you installed the gnome-xxx-devel packages?

These lines come from my ~/.xinitrc (depends how you start x, you may
use xsession or xclients).

# set a few keys correctly
xmodmap $usermodmap
# [...]
# Other little bits and bobs...
# [...]
exec gnome-session

The file ~/.Xmodmap contains these lines:
keycode 22 = BackSpace
keycode 107 = Delete

See how that works for you. If you wish, you can check the keycode
values on your system using xev (X event viewer) from a terminal and 
pressing the relevant keys.

You may still need to make some per-app alterations, but this covers
most of them.
