Cross Platform KVM--Help!!!!!

A big whud up to everyone.....

I am helping a friend who is in a market for a KVM. He has 2PCs and one Powerbook G4.
I need one KVM (4 port) that will work both with his PCs and the Powerbook. After some research I came across this KVM (http://www.iogear.com/products/product.php?Item=GCS84B)
I believe I would also have to purchase this adapter for his Powerbook G4 (http://www.iogear.com/products/product.php?Item=GCV160).
I would prefer to use a PS2 mouse and keyboard (unless using it will not work for this setup). The monitor is a regular NEC monitor (PC DB15 pin connection) with possibility of upgrading to a LCD (non DVI) in the future. I have used this KVM before but for an all PC shop with great results.

My questions are as follows:

Will this setup work (I don't know the port naming convention, connections etc for the Powerbook)?

Is anyone out there using this or a similar setup?

Will the above KVM work or do I need a USB based KVM(Powerbook?)?

I know there are several other manufacturers that make cross-platform KVMs (Belkin linksys etc.)

Any recommendations/help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in Advance
