Yes; I was most disappointed to find that out. I have a Personal IRIS that
is from that same era. Checking out reputable.com, they specifically say
of their keyboards "They do NOT work on original Indigo, Personal Iris, or
Power Series".

If anyone has any human interface stuff (kbd, mouse, etc.) for this type
of machine laying around, consider me WTB. I'd be pretty leery of getting
it on eBay -- I would have no clue whether the seller really knows what
he's talking about.
