How can I convert a playstation 2 controller to usb?

I want to use my playstation 2 controller on my pc. I know there is an adapter but I jus want to do it myself. Can someone tell me how to creat one?

Converting it to USB will be a much much more complicated than converting it to parallel, serial, or good old fashioned "joystick port". (Do those still exist?)

There is a very detailed set of instructions here for connecting a PS controller to a parallel port as well as the drivers you'll need to do it.
