DIM to mini-DIM connector?

I have a keyboard that terminates in a DIM connector.  Sadly, most of the computers I see have mini-DIM ports.  Is there a DIM to mini-DIM connector?  And if so, can be bought at Radio Shack or some other major electronics/computer store?

I found it at Best Buy.  Walmart also carries it.  It was called a PS/2 to AT adapter.
