I've seen a lot of message from people having trouble with KVMs.  I did have a 
Belkin, but it was a serial connector type, not USB.  I had no problems at 
alll with that, running two Linux boxes.  If you can find one of those and you 
have serial ports on the boxes you want to use, I'd say buy this.  It may be 
old technology, but it works.
