I had similar problems getting an Sun IPX working.  I couldn't get 
gpm and X to use the mouse together very well, so I turned off
gpm and used the device "/dev/sunmouse" with protocol "busmouse"
for the mouse. My keyboard section is as follows - you'll probably
have to change XkbModel to type5.

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Keyboard0"
        Driver      "keyboard"
        Option          "CoreKeyboard"
        Option          "XkbRules"      "sun"
        Option          "XkbModel"      "type4"
        Option          "XkbLayout"     "us"

Also, you probably want to start X using startx while testing,
so that you immediately see any error messages.
