Linux Drivers for Wireless KB

I use an azerty keyboard (Belgian layout) despite my current residence in the USA, and my stepmom just, in trying to do me a marvellous favour, sent me a 302KS Silverline Wireless Deskset from Trust. I am, of course, insanely grateful (for the gesture if nothing else); however I'm unable to locate Linux drivers for it.
I run Slack 9.0, and I don't intend to use the mouse since I'm rather partial to my trackball.
I've looked on tucows, sourceforge, and freshmeat without any luck. My first venture was, but they don't support Linux as of right now, and provided instead a handful of links "where the drivers might be found". Kind, but useless.

Any ideas?

How does the receiver module connect to the PC? Is it via the PS/2 style plug or USB?

Is this the one, sir?

It uses a standard PS/2 interface. It should work as a perfectly normal PS/2 keyboard. The 'shortcut' keys, however, are a different matter. You can download a program called LinEAK or XBindKeys.

Hope these help (my Medion keyboard look identical to that, so I'm guessing it is basically the same keyboard).
