I know have the keyboard working with the following:

Section "InputDevice"

    Identifier  "Keyboard1"
    Driver      "kbd"
    Option      "XkbRules" "sun"
    Option      "XkbModel" "type5"
    Option      "XkbLayout" "us"
    Option      "XkbGeometry" "sun(type5)"

    Option "AutoRepeat" "500 30"


Note that both the XkbModel and XkbGeometry use type 5, even though
the back of the keyboard definitely says it's type 6 (part no.
3201270-01). Changing those lines to type 6 stop it from working.
