I beg to differ. The keyboard looks just like a PS/2 keyboard, but it
isn't, and they don't interchange! The genuine keyboard has an ID
number printed in white in the margin of the piece of trim that covers
the Num Lock / Caps Lock LEDS.
I found that out the hard way, after an office move in which two
keyboards got swapped. We called the service engineer out and after he
had changed the mother board (ugh!) to no effect, he retrieved the
correct keyboard from the PC on a colleague's desk (said colleague was
away on holiday at the time) and it worked fine.
But a PS/2 mouse works fine. I used an RS/6000 mouse on my PC for some
years - it was detected as Logitech...
