In my experience, any PS/2 mouse and/or keyboard will work just fine.

I have used a Sun 17" (Sony) with an Indy/Octane/Inigo (original and II) with no issues, but i think this varies a lot based on the CRT.

I'll be moving from the US to Japan by October 2007 and most of my possessions MUST BE SOLD, as it is too costly to ship them to the other side if the planet :)

So keep checking the KRM eBay Store between now and mid-late September and you might come up on some pretty nice bargains on all kinds of different stuff.

The KRM eBay Store!
