What is required to install the new keyboard?
Answer:   If you already have a keyboard plugged into your computer you will need to unplug the keyboard and plug in the ZTab keyboard. If this is a new computer plug the ZTab keyboard into the color coded PS2 port on the back of the computer. The old keyboard can be unplugged and the ZTab keyboard can be plugged in with the computer running. However, we recommend a computer shut down before swapping the keyboards then restarting the computer (for more information about installing your new keyboard See Installation).

My notebook has only one PS2 port and my mouse is plugged into it - How can I plug in my keyboard too?
One solution is to get a PS2 Y splitter cable (see below for details).   This will allow a PS2 mouse and PS2 keyboard to be used simultaneously.
Another solution is to use a USB mouse if the notebook is equipped with a USB port (a USB mouse is relatively inexpensive however more costly than a PS2 Y splitter).
Yet another solution is to use a PS2 to USB adapter which will allow the mouse or keyboard to be plugged into the USB port if available.
One more solution is to get a USB to PS2 Y splitter cable which will allow both keyboard and mouse to be plugged into the notebook using a single USB port.
