I am replacing a dead Ocktek Rhino9 (stop recognizing floppy drive) with an SP-586TX. I am having a problem hooking up the PS/2 port.

The Rhino9 had a 4-pin connector with Red, Black, Orange, and Yellow wires on pins 1-4, respectively.

The SP-586TX has a 5-pin connector on the motherboard with a key on pin 2 (no pin).

I was hoping for some help on what the pinout was for this so that I can correctly rewire the 4-pin to work on the 5-pin

Thanks in advance!

I found that information, but what I am trying to find is what the pinout is on the Motherboard so that I can connect the PS/2 port.

I = Pin _ = No Pin

usually pin 1 is the +5V pin. Use a multimeter to find what the +5 and the GND pins are, once you get those out of the way all that can happen you mix up the data pins which is usually not fatal (e.g. producing smoke).
