    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:

    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.
