How do I get all the additional multi function buttons to work on a PC keyboard? - for example a Packard Bell keyboard with a Siemens PC.

How do you get all the extra buttons to work?  Should the make of the keyboard and PC be the same?  Or can you mix any keyboard with any PC?  I have no drivers that I am aware of.

The keyboard driver from the manufacturers website should be fine with any pc, as long as it is for the correct os. driverguide.com is also a good source of drivers. If you are not sure, post back with the model number and manufacturer (may not be Packard Bell) of the keyboard - should be on the back.
