Is this "wrong places" as in the keycaps will be wrong, or
the touch-typing will be wrong?

I don't suppose you (or anyone else) has one of these Laptops (or
ones that take the same keyboard: Satellite 2200, 2800, 4200, 4300,
4600, Portege 7100, 7200 or Tecra 8100 and would be willing to
check the keyboard's back for a part number?

Of course Pacman didn't influence us as kids. If it did,
we'd be running around in darkened rooms, popping pills and
listening to repetitive music.
