Mate....

Get a controller or a Joystick i know its extra money but man its hell playing any fighter on a keyboard.

Go buy a second hand 360 controller and stick to using the joysticks on it. What that will cost you 20 / 15 Quid.

Why? I've been playing fighting games since they began on PC with my keyboard and I can pull off combos, special moves, and kick most people's butt... It just what each person gets used to...

Extremely easy, it's also faster than a controller.

Hadoken Metsu (in my case) is down right down right and you immediately press A+S+D at the same time, the others are the same, just less buttons.

On a gamepad, to do a Hadoken, you would "roll" the pad in a quarter motion, from the down position to the forward position, and press punch when you reach the forward position.

To to a Shoryuken, you would move it in a Z motion over the bottom quarter of the pad (from neutral, to forwards, to down, to down/forwards), and press punch.

To do a Senpukyaku, you would do a reversed Hadouken (i.e. a quarter roll away from your opponent) and press Kick instead of punch.

Now, how to do these on the keyboard... I dunno, I've never tried it and I wouldn't want to. I guess for the Hadoken you should try pressing down and then right in quick succession and try to overlap the two. How you would do the Shoryuken confuses me. As you might have guess, the keyboard isn't ideal for fighting games.

When I first played Street Fighter II on the Mega Drive it took me a LONG time to work out how to do the Hadoken and similar moves. I wouldn't be too disheartened that you can't do it right away, just keep practicing. After a while it becomes second nature.

cheers for all , i think if you are good in keyboard in street fighter its will be more easy to do moves,special and combo etc...

but when you play with gamepad its will be more fun , i mean you dont need to set in front of your screen to play on keyboard on a desk,

while gamepad instead , you can play as far as you wish away from your screen , especially if you have big screen

Shoryuken = same as Hadouken, only you tap forward before executing it. Easy enough?

It's 623+P. Look at the number pad to see what directions the numbers correspond to (it's Forward, Down, Down-Forward.)

I cannot imagine playing Street Fighter with a keyboard. Get a 360 controller or an arcade fighting stick.
