If you can dig up another monitor, a neat alternative to a KVM is
to use 'synergy' to pass keyboard and mouse control among multiple
machines, making them act like a single multi-headed box even
though they might be running different OS's - and you get
cut/paste across them too. http://synergy2.sourceforge.net/

I use it at home with a single monitor with a built in 2
way switch and at work spanning across 2 desktop machines
and a laptop that is usually there.
