I can't speak for Bill's complete solution, but C=Key can be used to 
enable a PS2 KB to control a PET (The code will work fine, but it needs 
a new mapping table for the PET key matrix).  With a bit of translation 
and a bit of code to read the serial port (RS232 routines are already on 
the unit for debugging), you could use RS232 to control it.
