    Accepted Solution

    Check in the BIOS and see if there is a Legacy USB setting.

    If you can get DOS keyboard drivers, you can add then to the bootdisk.
    Look here for background info to help do it:

    The above is correct, but didn't your keyboard come with a PS2 adapter? If not you can pick one up at the local for a couple of dollars.

    I checked in the BIOS and didn't find anything but I was at someone elses house using their computer so I am just going to bring one of my keyboards over there temporarily. But thanks for all your help.
