Connect a rx2600 (W2003) to KVM 400337-XXX ?

The configuration is: A rack with 4 DL380 (w 2003), 2 rx2600(w 2003), and a KVM 400337-XXX 1X8 port.

I connect the DL380 G3 to the KVM, but the rx2600 has a USB port and not a PS2 port like the DL380 G3.

I am thinking to buy a "A7782A USB to Dual-port PS/2 Adaptor" but i dont know if this could work with the KVM 400337-XXX ??

Thanks.

As stated it will work. But if you can afford a new KVM there is the new line of KVMs that use a dongle and Cat5 for the cabling. http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/servers/proliantstorage/rack-options/list.html#console
is the link.
The dongles come in both a PS/2 and USB version. I've connected the USB versions to everything from RX2600s to SUN servers. There is also a version with IP connectivity that allows you to Remotely connect over a LAN. The IP connection is similar to RILOE.
The Cat5 cables are sooo much eaiser to work with!

Mario / Glenn, thanks for your help.
I am buying a a "A7782A USB to Dual-port PS/2 Adaptor" to connect the rx2600 (w 2003) --> KVM 400337-XXX.
Could be better buy the new line of KVMs (based on CAT5) but i dont have USD 2K.
Please i need to know if someone has proben this configuration....
