As long as its a normal IR or RF keyboard, the hardware takes care of the translation in and out of the air, the keystrokes that make it to software are the same as if the computer were plugged in over PS/2 or USB. Anything that advertises as a "104-key wireless Keyboard", etc... should do the job just fine. If you switch from PS/2 to USB though, remember to change your XF86Config file, unless of course your distro is smart enough to do that for you.
