 Hot plugging PS/2 keyboards
Author: Christopher Smith

Dan, just so that you're aware, hot plugging PS/2 keyboards is not a good idea unless you really have to. It's possible to fry the keyboard controller chip on your motherboard, thus rendering all your PS/2 ports dead.

I highly recommend spending a few dollars on a USB keyboard if you plan to hot plug often. Frying PS/2 controllers isn't particularly common, but it can (and does) happen.
