Hi,

Whats better to use if my keyboard has the ability to use PS2 and USB ports? I am assuming USB although I have come to like the little PS2 hole =D.. If its USB should I use 1.1 or 2.0?

It doesn't matter coz you won't be able to type faster than the max transfer rate allowed by the ports anyway. Personally, I would use the PS2 port and save the USB ports for other USB devices.

I would use PS2 because then you don't have to mess around inside the BIOS to enable keyboard support in DOS.

And it keeps your USB ports (which share bandwith) clean.

My CPU fan spins so fast that it creates a wormhole :eek:
