Having trouble installing a piece of hardware? Want to know if that peripheral is compatible with Linux?

Wireless Keyboard Issue

I'm trying to install Gentoo (plenty of issues there for another thread), I have a MS Wireless Keyboard. As I'm typing, after only a couple keystrokes, I get the following message:

atkbd.c: Unknown key released (translated set 2, code 0x81 on isa0060/serio0).
atkbd.c: Use 'setkeycodes e001 <keycode>' to make it known.
I know the problem isn't that it doesn't recognize the keys, but maybe that I'm pressing more than one key at a time? Whatever the reason, it's really annoying, and I'm wondering if there is a way to just suppress the error message.

Good luck...

All I can think of is to hunt it down in the kernel and fix it there.
For the moment I'm very disgruntled with lousy of these days soon I'll take a shot at it.
