You cannot search using just part of the Key ID. Also, if you want to search on the Key ID, which is of course a hex number, you need to prefix it with '0x'. So:

http://pgp.mit.edu:11371/pks/lookup?search=0x99B62126&op=index

Public Key Server -- Index ``0x99B62126 '' Type bits /keyID Date User ID
pub 1024D/99B62126 2004/11/18 HMDC Linux Support <linux_support_at_latte.harvard.edu>

You can however search using part of the User ID:

http://pgp.mit.edu:11371/pks/lookup?search=HMDC&op=index

Public Key Server -- Index ``HMDC ''
Type bits /keyID Date User ID
pub 1024D/99B62126 2004/11/18 HMDC Linux Support <linux_support_at_latte.harvard.edu>

HTH, Marc
