Yeowser! Boy, some of them are costly. Me might hafta muddle through for awhile. Thanks.

A basic KVM costs about £30 in the UK (I use one) complete with cables for two machines. They're not that expensive unless you want to run the monitor over CAT V, or need more than 4 machines switched.

Basic would be what I want. Is there a more specific term? 'KVM switches' seems kinda generic.
Only looking for a basic swith that will allow me to use the same kb on both machines.
Anything specific I should be looking for, terminology wise?

I bought one for about 20 bucks in Houston at an electronics store, but I figure I can't post the link here. It's one of the old style with the switch in front to pick up to 4 monitors / keyboards / mice. The cables wound up costing more than the switch. Only downside is you have to be switched to a computer as it's restarting so the keyboard is found.
Belkin makes one - I don't know where you are, but if you've got a Best Buy or CompUSA nearby, they sell 'em.
