Did you read the manual ? Do this and ask again.I'm sure they can explain this better than we can or gave you a toll free #.

USB is better unless your motherboard doesnt support USB keyboards on startup.

well i would use the ps2 instead. for one example you can have an extra usb slot if u use the ps2 instead, and ps2 are usually the default for mobos (i think).

USb drains resources, also for basic things it will want to use a ps2 mouse. Eg windows installation, system restore from bootup etc. Safe mode!

usb keyboards suck. I didnt like mine at all. it needed drivers to work. I went to a ps2 and all is better.
