    I use a Dr. Bott KVM (it's gettin' kinda flaky on me though). I'd recommend looking at Belkin.com. It probably won't be the cheapest in town, but it will be quality and you won't be disappointed w/it.

    i have used a belkin ps/2 kvm switch connecting a linux box, windoze, and a mac (using a belkin ps/2 - usb adapter) and it worked great. it even supported switching from the keyboard. the only problem i have ever had was using a microsoft wireless mouse. sometimes after switching machines, the mouse would jump around until a reboot.

    I'm surprised at the price of KVMs, but yeah, i've seen them used pretty successfully. that one looks OK, but i recommend a belkin, unless it's significantly over 100$.
