I've recently picked up a Classic sans keyboard+mouse, and being a bit 
of a Sun newbie I'm not sure what I need in the way of devices to be 
able to use this thing.  I would just serial console it, but after 
digging through piles of cables and adapters, I haven't managed to 
find a combination that would connect to both the Sun and my PC or 
SGIs.  Would one of these keyboards and mice work for me?  If so, I'll 
take a couple of mice and keyboards.
