..a PS/2 keyboard and mouse combo port.

Buy a USB mouse or keyboard. That's pretty much all you can get these days anyway. If you're picky, and don't want to use two USB ports, MS wireless keyboard sets use one receiver for both mouse and keyboard, and just one USB port. Logitech (as far as I know) uses two ports.

Strangest setup I've ever seen!!!
