I have this same problem on a 735/99 that I tried installing to not too
long ago. It still boots and runs HP-UX with no keyboard problems, and
I've checked the contacts several times. Just letting you know that
you're not alone :-)
Unfortunately for me, it's not possible for me to run with a serial
console on this machine for a number of reasons (which are all logistical,
not Linux issues), so I guess it's an HP-UX machine for a bit longer...
