AT -> PS/2 -> USB -> Extended USB Cable -> Computer
Or if there is a straight AT -> USB that works too!

Put all of the keys in a bowl with warm water and put denture cleaning tabs in (I assume that is what you meant by dental tabs, if not either way it worked great). Used some simply lysol wipes on the board. I had trouble getting the case off and didn't want to damage the keyboard so I didnt take the shell off. Compressed air cans on the switches, turns out I have white alps switches. Let the keys dry for about 30min, and when placing them back on shot compressed air inside of them. The results were good, it took a few hours for the keys to 100% dryout but it was a great success.
And I found a nifty link where a key making company was selling small alps key caps, and bought a red background white text Esc key for $1.25, will post a picture when I am done with the complete product.
