There is no easy way to capture enter key event, you will need
javascript code.

You can see this module http://drupal.org/project/default_submit (I did
it, by I do not advice you to use it!) which implements one way to do it
(not the better).

Most browsers will use the first submit or button in the current focused
form when the user click enters, but a lot of others will just do

JavaScript is the key!
