[rescue] Pinouts for C2T on IBM 330?

I have just aquired an IBM eServer 330. I have one of the coupling C2T cables
(which is used to chain multiple servers together to a single
keyboard/mouse/monitor), but I don't have a breakout cable.
I can connect a monitor by putting in a video card, and a mouse by using the
USB port. For the keyboard, I'm stuck.
I really just need to hook up a keyboard long enough for me to verify that the
server actually runs well (I got is used, dirt cheap), install an OS, and get
it on my network. Once there, I can install a remote managment program and
then take care of the thing over the network. So I don't need a permanent
I have looked on eBay, and those breakout cables run $150+ !!! That's a lot
more than I paid for the server in the first place! I really just need a
temporary solution for hooking up a keyboard. If anyone knows the pinouts for
the C2T connection, I could splice a keyboard in to my C2T chaining cable.
Thanks in advance!
