    I have a mac mini and a G4 tower. how can I share a bluetooth keybord between 2 systems? a kvm is out of the question since wireless usb is the only wireless they support.

    thanks in advance

    You can, but I think you have to re-pair each time.

    Pair the keyboard with both systems (setup bluetooth device)

    then to switch use setup bluetooth device each time. should be able to do it relatively quickly once you've paired.

    not sure what your monitor situation is, but check out synergy, basically its a software KM (doesnt help with video).
