Brian, I am using a 4x switch between two linux systems, an NT and a laptop
running either. In most cases it works, depending on if you are all ps/2
or serial, etc. If you need a mixture of ps/2 and serial, it'll cost a
little extra. They are available in most mail order catalogs. I purchased
mine at a place called Cables & Connector Technologies 800-452-8770. They
are in Ohio. They have 2, 4, 8 or cascadable switches for large numbers of
pc's. You can switch from the keyboard or from the box.
