wireless keyboard

This is probably a strange question, but is it possible to hook up a wirless keyboard along with my regular wired keyboard?
Seems like its possible since the wirless keyboard/mouse uses usb?

I haven't tried it but it seems the OS would pick only one during startup. That frequently happens with the mouse.

I'm not sure about the keyboard, but I can test it when I get home from work. I never have any issues with the mouse though. I've always been able to hook up multiple mice without any issues though.

If both keyboards are running USB, it shouldn't be a problem.

It's when PS/2 comes into the mix that problems usually arise.

Yep, I have had 2 mice going at the same time: 1 wireless and 1 usb.
