OK Couple of things to report.
I called up Pckeyboard.com and asked about usb adapters for the SK-7000.
Jim was very nice and helpful. He hadn't heard of motherboards with only one ps2 port (neither had I until recently) and said he didn't have any official recomendations. BUT he did say he had a couple USB/ps2 adapters which he had used and worked for him. They are:Kingwin UPS2CIOGear GUC10KMBytecc BT-2000
They are all fairly inexpensive and don't seem "special" in any way!?! I havn't been able to determine a common factor except they say they are all for both Windows and Mac.
I didn't mention Linux as that typically makes people stutter and say "Linux isn't supported"
I was able to borrow a couple of peices of equipment to try out tonight. First was a simple ps2 to USB adapter. About 1.5" lg, female ps2 on one end male USB on the other end. As expected it didn't work (Try the simple solution first)
I then was able to borrow a serial to USB adapter per Rgb's suggestion. WORKED FLAWLESSLY!!!
The part number on it is U232-P9 and I think this is the brandhttp://www.mct.com.tw/web_c/html/pro...&Page=1&PID=18
Next step is to see if there is anything special about this USB adapter (not thinking there is) and buy one for myself!
I am using this keyboard currently and it works very well with a couple of minor gripes.
1) No scroll. I knew this going in and it will not be a big deal for it's final use, but websurfing is painful for me without scroll
2) The left Fn key and the Ctrl key need to be switched.... I keep hitting the Fn key when I try to cut and paste.
3) For some reason my mind wants the upper right most key (pause/break) to be the delete key. Probably just a personal problem
On the plus side, the typing is very good, good key spacing, good balance, good weight (feels solid but not heavy) and easy to hold on to when using the mouse stick.
I think I'll keep it
