How to get keyboard event in Linux console?

Hi all,
I want to deal keyboard event in Linux console.
Example: I Create a deamon at background and when I press F1 key then
print Hello at Console.

Can python do it? with which module?

Thanks.

Type "who" and see which PTY you're connected to:

sybren pts/0 2006-10-04 07:55 (klappie.stuvel.eu)

So I'm connected to pts/0. If you read from /dev/pts/0, you'll see
everything I type.
