I've never had to go down this road but I have heard that there are loggers 
that are placed between the keyboard ps/2 cord and the ps/2 plug in the 
computer.  The claim I've heard is that they're pretty much undetectable by 
software.  Hopefully the ps/2 connection is in the back of the computer 
where someone rarely looks.  Try googling "keystroke logger ps/2" to get a 
list of them.

Hope this helps....
