Hello----

I need to ask about whether something is possible, and if so, how would it work?

If I have 2 PC systems sitting side by side (each for different purposes), can I set them up so that they share the same mouse, keyboard, printer, speakers and monitor? I would only be using one system at a time.

The reason I ask is (1.) in order to save space and also (2.) to save $$$.

Please let me know if this would work somehow OR if I need to wake up and buy additional hardware. :tazz:

Thanks so much to everyone here----you are great!!!! ~Laughter
