VGA, keyboard, and mouse cords to cat 5

I have seen adapters that convert like vga monitor ports to RJ-whatever (cat 5) cable.  I am wanting to hook the computer in my office to the KVM in the back office.  My question is, are there adapters that will convert the keyboard conectors and mouse connectors to cat 5?  If so, how far will the signal reach?

Thanks.

Belkin has extension units that go up to 1000 feet on Cat5.  Here is the link.

That will work, one more question....will that work with a regular KVM or does it have to be one with "CAT5 Extension"?

Thanks.

It'll work.  I would just put one of them at each end to provide the Cat5 Interface.
