All right just wondering if anyone had an idea of how to work around a problem i have.

I am trying to get a Belkin Omniview PRO3 kvm switch to work with a new Dell r300 server. The server only has usb ports. I bought a bytecc usb to ps/2 converter and that doesn't work. Even if I plug the keyboard directly into the converter I cannot get the keyboard to work. That makes me believe the converter is incompatible with the server somehow. Do any of you have any experience with this type of setup and/or know of a brand of ps/2 to usb converter that would work?

A lot of KVM switches don't play nice with adapters
Monitor adapters are also a pain
