So in the end you will really have AT-to-PS/2-to-USB?
Too many adapters could cause trouble.
But... I think I have what you need in my office. You can try one
before you buy. We use them to connect new Dell computers (USB-only) to
existing PS/2 KVM switches.
Just make sure you get one with a female PS/2 connector.
They cost under $16, sometimes with free shipping. Don't feel
ridiculous. If you want to double the weight to a full ounce, throw in
a 1GB thumb drive for another $10. :)
