Well lets get the ps2 keyboard interfaced first.  I’m going to use one of unmodified prototype shields they cost me $16.74 including shipping, oh well. first thing is to scrounge a ps2 female connector, luckily I had a damaged ps2 extender cable with the end that I needed.

Arduino Keyboard Cable Color
5+ Vcc Orange
Ground GND Red
DIO3 CLK Yellow
DIO4 DATA Black

The first thing I need to figure out how to hook it up. While looking around I found a interface and some code at Practical Arduino I really cant use much of his software as I only have 14 keys, but want to use a full ps2 for testing, I plan on using a keyboard encoder from a ps2 keyboard that I took apart.  Now I will solder the female end of the cable to the shield.
