I would highly recommend installing QuickSilver which is an excellent application launcher:

In QuickSilver you can also setup keyboard shortcuts for various actions (called Triggers) including launching an application.

If you click here

and then browse through the feature description until the eighth pane, you will learn about QuickSilver Triggers.

You could also have a quick look at the manual which is found here:

Triggers are described starting on page 34.

Hope this helps.
