You asked, we answered, there's no reason to post another thread on the question. Go find a USB switchbox - USB peripheral sharing (especially cross-platform) doesn't seem to be a reality yet (besides USB printers).

[edit] i did a quick google search for "USB Sharing" and came up with quite a few sites, namely:
http://www.usbgear.com/usa/USB_sharing.html

USB sharing for 4 PC's / Macs to one device for $50. or look around, you can get them (mechanical switch) for as little as $25.
