Well, I only got 4 responses to my request but hopefully that was
enough. The first response said that a company called "Integrix" made
a Sun style keyboard that was PC compatible. I looked them up on the
Web, called their sales distributor, and sure enough they appear to
have exactly what I want. The price is $140 and they are supposed to
be faxing me more information. Feel free to write if you want sales
info or just search for Integrix on the Web. The second suggestion was
that perhaps the keyboard from an NCD X terminal would work. I have
not heard back from NCD yet.
