Just turn your computer off and plug the new one in and startup. Don't worry, if there's anything wrong it'll tell you. Keyboard drivers are usually for the benefit of special keys or features - if you have any problems, reconnect your old keyboard and post back but I'll be surprised if this is the case. One word of caution - don't plug in/unplug a PS2 board (the small plug variety) with the computer switched on; they don't like it!

Hey I got myself a new keyboard today too, and it was a £7 bargain. I didnt even uninstall the previous driver, I just plugged the new one in and it worked so I didnt really need the driver disk, but I used it cause I wanted to use the extra keys.

I bought a wireless keyboard and mouse a while ago and in the instructions it said important to remove any existing kb / mouse drivers first, but these were greyed out so I couldn't do that anyway. So, I just followed the rest of the instructions to install both and all has been OK.

Couple of tips, may not be the same with yours but just in case: the mouse batteries in mine only seem to last about a month and you know when they are on the way out because it gets a bit erratic and the light on the transmitter continually flashes (on mine anyway), and if the mouse hasn't been used for a while and the pointer appears stuck, right click it and you should be ok. Hope this helps, :o)
