heh, What do you mean by normal? Do you mean a ps2 connector? If so, I have no idea if there's an adapter for it or not...

hmm, yeah, i really dont know what he means either, but 90% of the USB keyboards that you can buy in a store will work on mac. Just like 90% of the USB keyboards that you can buy in a store will work on a PC.

F12 is always eject, whether there is an eject symbol there or not.

As for keyboards... The majority of USB keyboards will work for you. I don't think you can convert a keyboard between USB and PS/2. I could be wrong. I do know you can convert a USB mouse to a PS/2 mouse

This thread talks about holding down the F12 key for at least a second, I would hold it until it opens : http://forums.macnn.com/showthread.p...keyboard+apple
