Hi everyone,

I want to build a rackmount system but I've never seen one in action before, so I have a few questions (probably stupid but here goes)

Are they easy to build?
How are multiple units connected to a single monitor/mouse/keyboard?
Do I need to worry about cooling?

If you have any helpful links to help me get up to speed I would appreciate it.

well...to use one monitor and mouse with multiple computers you need a kvm switch.
