Okay thanks, does it matter on what kind of a switch to buy? and what if I want to view both of the at once for example... I've never done this before, is there a cd or something to hook this up!!

Thanks again!

If you want to attach 1 keyboard, 1 mouse and 1 monitor to 2 computers... I would use this little puppy:

I use one and I love it. I also love belkin.
