Serial keyboard I'm still lost! I have a couple of generic old keyboards - which don't require any special drivers when you plug them into PS2 ports. I think the appropriate keyboard driver is on the machine, but it doesn't know to use it with the serial port. I saw something on the Microsoft site saying that for NT the drivers add registry entries associating the keyboard with a port, but I couldn't find an example for XP. To get this done I would need more explicit instructions.
