In my experience most keyboards should with with most KVM's.  The only exception I've seen over the years is when MS first came out with their Natural Keyboard, it wouldn't work with some of the Belkin switches until Belkin came out with a firmware upgrade.   I'd say your best bet is to check with the manufacturer of your KVM and let them know what you are interested in buying and see if there is any kind of compatibility issue.
