    Two keyboards on the same computer?

    Is this possible? My plan is to convert my steeringwheel buttons into a keyboard signal (usb) and still be able to use the standard keyboard on PS2.

    Q#2:

    Is there a small and simple controller for what I want to do, or do I have to "hack" a small numeric keyboard or something?

    Yes, you can have multiple keyboards. Just plug them in and it works.

    I've had a PS/2 keyboard, USB PlayStation2 mini-keyboard, and a Fellowes foldable keyboard hooked up at the same time, no troubles in Linux or Windows.

    As per Q2, yes there are keyboard encoders you can buy for simple hookup:
