dumb question...


Anyone seen an adapter that will allow you to plug a USB-only keyboard into a PS/2 slot? They make adapters for PS/2 keyboards to plug into a USB slot, but it doesn't seem like its possible to do the reverse. Any links would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Kevin

I have about 50 of those things lying about at home I know they exist, for I use them whenever there is a problem with usb.

They arent hard to find, most any repair shop or computer store has them.
