KVM Switch

Actually the problem is a little worse.  Every time you plug a PS/2
keyboard into a motherboard, you have a chance of ruining the
motherboard.  With good, digital KVM's they simulate a constant connection
so that the computer never realizes the keyboard's been unplugged.

We're using the Belkin OmniView PRO 16-Port that was recommended
earlier, and it has been working pretty well for us.
