I've had a few and found the ones that look like a Y-cable work far
better than the ones that look like a little lump of an adapter. I use
my Indy keyboard through a KVM and one of the Y-cable adapters to a PC
and an SGI, and used to have the same setup at work.
But has anyone found a decent solution to connecting a USB mouse - such
as a wireless mouse - to a PS/2 machine? Eg my nice Logitech MX to an
Indy? I know there are some adapters for older Logitech mice, but
they're just wiring rearrangements for mice that already understand PS/2.
