...intelligent kvm switch to run 2 computers...

off of one monitor, one keyboard, and one mouse. can someone give me some leads on some quality intelligent kvm products (2 ports are probably enough). also intelligent usb switching would be nice, especially if would keep my windows 98se internet machine from locking up when any active usb (with device on or off) is unplugged..grrrr. something about msgrv or mgsrv not responding--?, and it locks up the whole computer. mostly want to be able to switch between the 2 computers and not have either one lock up while monitoring the other.

A KVM switch and cables such as this: http://************/b34ka

For 98se, you need the USB drivers and check the icon in the systray to unplug the device to use USB easily. You could connect a USB hub to both machines and try that. http://************/be2mv

Hope this helps.

It'll cost you about $60 but mcm has a 2 port iogear kvm that works pretty nicely. I believe this model even has hot key switching so your hands don't need to leave the keyboard. Since the cables are integrated there's no additional cable costs. Check...


or go to mcmelectronics.com and search for 'iogear kvm' and find the 2 port mini for about $55.
