Great. I didn't think about those USB keyboards. I used a PS/2 keyboard
controler connected to the internal PS/2 connector (leaving the real
PS/2 port unusable).

I would go for that one. Maybe you also have the possibility to modify
the mapping from scan codes (returned by the USB device) to key codes,
thus decoupling the PS/2 keyboard keycodes and the USB keypad codes...
This is possible with the PS/2 keyboard driver.
