AFAIK, Sun sells a PS/2 to Sun adaptor, runs around $75
(at least they used to, I had one at $JOB-1 for a while).
Belkin also makes one to go with their KVMs that use PS/2
keyboards; I'd expect that it might possibly work with
other KVMs.  I *think* I still have mine (also from $JOB-1
after I became a *manager* and had to have a PC--so I got
a KVM), so I could check.

Which brings me to another question: they make adaptors to
turn a PS/2 mouse into a USB mouse (Logitech included them
with their mice in the early days of USB).  Anyone know if
there is a critter that goes the other direction, so I could
plug a Kinesis into my USB KVM?  That would cover all bases--
Mac, x86, Sun.
