I want a converter to use a Sun keyboard on a peecee.

No, no. Do both. Run Solaris on the SPARC stuff, linux and BSD on the 
peecees. Learn it all. The utilities and basic systems are alike enough 
that you'll be comfortable in both once you're comfortable in one. It 
doesn't take long. What did one guy here say? 25 commands?
