Form buttons should *already* be usable with keyboard:
Checkpoint 1.1 Full keyboard access. (P1) 
1.	Ensure that the user can operate through keyboard input alone any
user agent functionality available through the user interface.

Try it - tab through your form controls until you get to
the button in question. Then hit return.

If you want to have specific keys activating buttons, then try
the accesskey attribute.
