Very old computers used 5 pin DIN connectors for the keyboards and 9 pin serial connectors for mice.

Old computers are just that - old. How many plugs does it have and how many pins in each one? I think they keyboards standart plug has changed from win 95 days, so has the mouse?
What mouse and keyboards do u have? Does it use USB or PS/2?

A keyboard can be plugged into the folowing:
A PS/2 connector is a six pin DIN connector
The old comp might have an AT five pin DIN connector.
The USB port - well I think you know hwat it looks like.

A mouse can be pluygged into the following
PS/2 6 pin
USB
9 pin serial
25 pin serial

I doubt you could buy a new Keyboard with the 5 pin DIN or Serial mouse anymore. You might be able to find one used at a local computer shop. You also might be able to find adapters that convert a PS/2 mouse to a serial mouse and PS/2 keyboard to a 5 pin DIN. I have both of these at home and I think I even found them at Office Depot or Office Max.
