You can use a normal usb keyboard on a mac, so I assume you can do it the other way round, but I barely use macs, so im not guarenteeing it would work.

There is something in the bios to set for usb keyboards btw.

thanks Trifid,
i reckon you can too, it's just that on the page for it, it recommends you have OS 10.2 or later. guess it can always be taken back!

i just find the apple 'boards nicer to type on than others in the same price range, plus they look a lot nicer.
anyway, bought it, plugged it in and it works perfectly.

I never much cared for Apple aesthetics...They're neat at first, but I can't see looking at them every day.

'Course, I never did an acid trip either, so whatever...
