    I want to connect a ps2 keyboard to a usb port, keeping at the same
    time another keyboard on the ps2 port. Is it possible? Would the
    keyboard on the usb be detected by win XP? Would both keyboards work
    at the same time?

    Apart from the ps2 to usb adapter, do i need any software?

    Any advice would be wellcome

    Yes, this is possible. I did it with a keyboard on a laptop that had no ps2 port.

    Yes it should be possible. It would be just like pluging in a
    mouse/keyboard/usb device.

  6. never knew existed. As to conversions, no software required...just the
    adapters to and/or from USB.
