    I have seen inexpensive USB to PS/2 connectors, but are there inexpensive PS/2 to USB connectors? I recently bought all the parts to build a new computer including a new PS/2 Microsoft Internet Keyboard. The motherboard was faulty and immediately fried itself. The new motherboard I ordered has no PS/2 connectors...

    So, anyone know of these? I have seen some for $25 or more, but at that price I might as well auction off my keyboard on ebay and buy a new USB keyboard.

    I don't think you'll find one for much less than that. I paid $30 for the Belkin variety to use with my gyro wireless mouse.

    I wonder how compatible these usb only motherboards are with older OS? I always have to revert back to a cheap PS/2 keyboard because Win98 and 2K installs would cut the usb at various points.
