    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 (
    I believe I would also have to purchase this adapter for his Powerbook G4 (
    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
