Can I hook up a Mac mini and a PowerMac G5 to the same 23" Cinema HD Display?

I don't believe you would be able to use the display solo with both at the same time, but it should work with a KVM switch.

For awhile, I had a PC and an old Mac connected to the same monitor with one. I believe your screen is DVI, so you could maybe use something like this

EDIT: Guess I was beaten to it. But indeed, a KVM switch is what you are looking for.

Thanks for the feedback. Didn't realize they were so costly. I guess I'll have to get the Mac mini 1.66 model instead of the 1.83 due to the cost of the switch :(
