I have recently bought an Indy, but didn't get a keyboard with it, so I
plugged a standard UK PS/2 keyboard in. All works well, except the | (pipe).

The key that's labelled ¦ (Left of the Z key) normally does |
In Windows, If you do CTRL-ALT and the key left of 1, it shows ¦

But, on the Indy I can only get the ¦ character, and can't find the |
anywhere, which is annoying, because the | is useful / essential in UNIX.

I have it set for UK keyboard in the Maintence section on boot, and in IRIX

Anyone have any ideas?   Getting a bit desperate!
