    Go to your local Apple Retail store, or inCompUSA and grab a USB keyboard. You can probably find a MacAlly one for not a lot of money, and just go with it. What does it matter if the color matches anyway??? Didn't the iMac come with a keyboard and mouse??? If not, unless you got it dirt cheap (sub $300) you got ripped.

    Then go and check out local stores, like compusa. I have seen cheap ones there, or splurge and go to one of the online catalogs. I wouldn't sell a system that came with a keyboard and mouse, without something. That is just not nice. I would rather sacrifice one (if I might need it) and make the buyer happy, then make them feel screwed (since you are going to spend extra $$ getting a keyboard and mouse now). You should be able to get an USB mouse for about $20 and a keyboard for close to the same. Neither might not have all the bells and whistles, but they will work. Pretty much all Loigtech mice will work with OS 9.x, with the drivers installed, and keyboards usually only need drivers for additional features. Just don't get a peecee keyboard, since you WILL need drivers, and they have keys that you will have to relable.
