Hi,
I have an older pre-PS/2 keyboard.  It has a large sized circular 5/8" connector on it with 5 pins.  I want to solder/convert to a  PS/2 type connector.

Do you happen to know the wire assignments for converting it to ps/2?  

Thankyou!!

You can buy a converter for about $2.  I doubt you could buy the parts to make your own for that price.
