Ok, that's sounds familiar. Probably no FCC or VDE signs and other 
bells and whissles on the back, so one can assume that our Magnums 
are identical.

So... The problem must be with your keyboard(s). I suggest to
add some debug code in the keyboard driver so that we can see
what really happens. Also increase the timeouts. 

Paolo, you reported problems with your keyboard too a while
ago. I don't remember if you tried with the RiscOs bootloader
or with the ARCS Bios. Could you please verify this again,
and perhaps also try to boot a Linux kernel so that we can find
out what happens? If you don't find the time to build a kernel,
let me know. I'll upload a binary to FNET then.
