Keyboard connector on motherboard dell inspiron2200

\015 Hi. I am adding a USB keyboard and mouse to my Dell Inspiron2200 laptop. So.....I will no longer need or use the existing internal keyboard. I see that the internal laptop keyboard is connected to the motherboard with a ribbon cable. Once I free the unused internal keyboard from the connector, can i reuse that slot? Can I plug another device into the motherboard connector, like a DVD drive with a ribbon cable? I know this is a strange modification.....but I would much appreciate any advice before I try it! Thank you much.\015

Personnally I would not try this. If this is the only laptop you have. now if its just a machine you tinker with you can try it. but for functunality I would leave the keyboard intact incase you ever want to use the portability of the laptop.
