O200 cables had a plastic protective cover, O2k cables had mesh, but it was the same technology.

I'm not sure how different the machines were. As far as I remember O200 runs the HUB at 90MHz whereas almost all 
O2ks run it at 100MHz. I don't know if there's some other check in there to keep the two from interoperating. If not, it would
be a great way to get keyboard/mouse and PCI on an Origin2000 (provided you can run the O200 sucessfully at 100MHz HUB speed).
