Sounds like the fuse for the PS/2 ports is blown. They're usually some=20
tiny surface mount thingy, called F(something).

I've had good luck with ol' Norton Commander 5.0, which runs fine even=20
in WinNT/2k, with Commander Link working virtually everywhere (on a=20
serial connection, though - even a 386SX-20 with only a 16450 UART=20
manages almost the full speed of 115200 bps, quite impressive). You=20
could also try the trusty Interlnk (Athlon)/Intersvr (486) combo.
