Keyboard and mouse advice

Hello, I've been having an Indy with me for 10 years or so. It has an R4600. I bought 2 adaptors from eBay to make a VGA display work with it, but since neither of them worked, I installed Debian on it and used it via it's serial port. :( I want to restore it to it's past glory. I want to play aroun...
