Off the top of my head it might have something to do with the layout of the
keys, and a different number of keys. I do know that they are
incompatible, although you can get a device to allow you to connect a PC
Keyboard, I believe it costs about as much to get the adapter as it would
to get a keyboard (go figure).

The following page has links to most all of the web pages dealing with
Amiga Hardware issues

This is probably the page that will be the most help

NOTE: The Amiga 2000 was released in 1987 and is therefore a valid topic of
discussion as it is 11 years old. The Amiga 500 was released the same year.
