Well the VS3100's can use either.
The keyboard's the LK201 from the VT220 or later DEC terminals.
(I think they can use the LK401 as well).

The mouse is the VSXXX-AA.

The video monitor differs with the video card.

Plug a keyboard into a vtxxx and the VTxxx to the back serial port and
skip plugging a monitor into the pizza box. I believe there's a small
dip switch next to the ethernet that needs to be flipped.

I think it's in the FAQ.
