    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.

    How would you eject the CD-Rom tray with another Keyboard?

    I enjoy my Mac's keyboard. Its so purty and sleek

    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
