I bought a brand new Belkin KVM switch today, that has the cables built-in. After ignoring the reviews from other people who have bought this that it had problems, I experienced the exact same problems (switching computers at random, not working with SBS 2003 altogether etc...)!

Can anyone recommend a decent switch I could try? It has to support USB in and out and control up to 2 computers.

Thanks in advance.

In all honesty I think I'll scrap the idea of getting a KVM. I've been using Remote Desktop everyday since installing the server, which so far seems to be the best solution that doesn't involve extra cost.

Thanks anyway. :)

You're welcome.   ... and I'd agree that if Remote Desktop is working, there's no compelling reason to switch to a KVM.
