I've switched to using the KVM's from Star-Tech (<$49 for 4-port) which work
well with any server/desktop/Linux/Windows that I plug into it). Also,
they have combo cables that on the PC end have the DB15 and a small
pig-tail for the KBD and Mouse but only a DB15 on the KVM end to reduce
cable clutter. Various lengths are available quite inexpensively 2', 4' 6'
10' etc. Check with pcconnection.com for the SV411K.
