USB color coding question

I think you'll find that "key" means that you use that to tell you which way round the plug/socket goes.
When you see the word KEY, think of something that locks something else in position, rather than something you type with.
My mobo has a 10pin in line header (ie. there are two rows of 5 pins). The colour and meaning are as you have stated. There is nothing (ie. empty) at the end of the first row, and a spare "key" pin at the end of the second.
My USB works just fine.
Use Suse 10.1 and occasionally play with Kubuntu
Also have Windows 98SE and BeOS
