I nedd a Mac for work and an IBM Windows PC for school.  I presently have a Mac Performa 6300cd.  Can my monitor and/or keyboard be configured so that I can just buy an IBM CPU and connect it to my existing Apple keyboard/monitor?  Does such an adaptor exist?  Thanks for your time.

I am sure the answeris no. You can probably share a Mac Monitor with a PC provided the monitor is a multisync one. The problem is connecting a Mac keyboard to the PC. I am sure PC Keyboards are very cheap and most probably your PC will come with one as well. Else use Softwindow for the mac and emulate a PC, or get a PC board that runs inside the Mac...(expensive though)
