: I work at a school and have been given the job of setting a workable music computer lab, but I'm new at all this so please help...

: We have an old computer lab with Imacs running OS9, and I have a mixture of Roland SK50iv and Em10 keyboards. We are looking at using PC's instead of Macs and currently run Windows 2000 and XP on the network.

: Can I use these old keyboards with Windows Xp and/or 2000, will I need to install drivers for them and if so where can I get them from? Or is it better to get newer keyboards? (I know the answer but don't think we can afford it :)

I don't think you need new keyboards. You may want to buy new USB MIDI interfaces, that's all.
I would recommend the Midiman / M-Audio UNO.
It can connect any MIDI capable keyboard to any PC or Mac with USB port.
