Share one keyboard between a PC and a SPARCstation (preferably SPARC keyboard)

: Well, the two types are not compatible. Even though I found PC
: versions of Sun keyboards and Sun versions of PC keyboards, I could
: not find anything (like a switchbox) to share one keyboard (preferably
: Sun type 5) between a PC and a SPARCstation.
:
: Can anyone let me know of such switchboxes ?
:

        Sun sells a box that allows you to use a PC keyboard & mouse on
a SPARC.  We bought one for evaluations last year.  Except for having
to play chords to invoke the L1-10 keys it was entirely satisfactory.  

        There are a few third party products that provide similar
functionality.  Check the BlackBox or workstation express catalogs.  
warning, these things cost a lot more than another keyboard.

Black Box and Rose Electronics make switches intended to allow a single
keyboard, mouse, and monitor to be used with multiple computers (mainly
for server rooms).
