Adapter ring for Canon lenses


I have some older Canon lenses I had on my AE-1. I have been searching around a bit (both here and other sites) and was hoping I could find some sort of adapter to put them on my k2000. I would like a reverse adapter to use them as macro lenses, but I would also not mind a normal adapter since they are pretty decent lenses. Does anyone know where I might be able to find something like this?

AFAIK an adapter to fit Canon FD to Pentax K doesn't exist. FD mount has much shorter register distance than PK so it would be impossible to have the lenses focusing to infinity without some glass in the adapter (=degraded image quality).

A while back I converted a Vivitar FD-mount lens to M42 but that required some serious hacking.
