years back I had a similar machine (tadpole sparc laptop, don't
remember which variety tho) which linux and NetBSD failed to
understand keypresses from, but OpenBSD did just fine.
Thanks OpenBSD does work with the keyboard but is there away to use this
so I can get the keyboard to work in Linux?

It will be significantly more difficult to write drivers for an
undocumented device. Your first step should be to gather as much
information as possible on it. sunhelp.org might be a good place to
start as the rescue list has a lot of folks who are very knowledgeable
about Sun kit. Have you identified via OpenBoot, proc, etc. what bus the
keyboard is attached to and what the keyboard controllers are? Have
you / can you open up the machine and find out what chips / parts are
