Intercepting keyboard from another app

Ok this is the deal. I have a program that runs in the backgrouund. What this program does is that it pop up a dialog when a certin amount of keypresses has acured. Do you get me? Now I'm writing a document in say Word or WordPerfect. Now how do I collect the keys hitted?

    Set up a keyboard hook. If you search through this board, delphi demos, and help files, you should be able to find examples.
