Oops. Sounds like you have an LK450, LK461 or LK471, not an LK401. LK401
uses a DEC protocol, the others are PS/2-style keyboards. They're not
interchangeable, I'm afraid. There should be a label on the underside,
with three barcodes, the top barcode being the model number. Does it say
LK401, or something a little different?
