With a couple of caveats, yes.

On the 400 series, the system has a PROM setting which must be set using
the _current_ keyboard, which tells the system what sort of keyboard to
use. Heaven help you if you have the wrong flavour of keyboard on hand.

The HIL keyboard is only supported under HP/UX, and is required to run it.

The DOMAIN keyboard is only supported under DOMAIN/OS, and is required to
run it.

Otherwise, yeah. If it's got HIL it'll work.
