Sure, I'll help. Let me go fetch my X settings... (opens nedit on 

I don't know what this qualifies as, but it's 'hp5181' (my keyboard is a 
HP5181), The keyboard rules appear to be pc104 with extra code for 
extended keys, XF86Audio[InsetKeyHere], example, XF86AudioPlay (or 
whatever the name for it is, i know that XF86Audio part is right)

My X config for the keyboard subject:

Section "InputDevice"

# miles of xorgcfg comments stripped for breverty, never removed them
# ...
    Identifier     "Keyboard1"
    Driver         "kbd"
    Option         "AutoRepeat" "500 30"
# Specify which keyboard LEDs can be user-controlled (eg, with xset(1))
    Option         "XkbRules" "xorg"
    Option         "XkbModel" "hp5181"
    Option         "XkbLayout" "en_US"
