should work, download the ubuntu iso image and burn a CD and boot from it, you will know right away if it's gong to work.

No reason it shouldn't work. As long as the manufacturer didn't do something silly, it should work just like any normal keyboard and mouse.

I'm using a wireless keyboard. I've tried quite a few distros including Ubuntu. Whilst Ubuntu did some interesting things to my machine, I had no trouble getting the keyboard to behave with it.
