Monitor in different room

hey folks,
  I have a new home with nice office and beautiful kitchen.

In my office is my wife's PC...high end Dell with 22" monitor.  
The "in my office " part is the problem.

What's the best way to keep her PC in my rack but have her monitor, keyboard and mouse in the kitchen.
As I said...the monitor is beautiful, the kitchen is beautifull...we just need her to work / operate in there without the tower sitting there in a $30k kitchen.

Check out these kind of kvm extenders:


They are available for normal VGA and DVI.
Yeah search for KVM Cat5 or KVM Ethernet.


That's one from newegg. Make sure to get one with the right ports (USB/PS2) and that can support the resolution of your beautiful monitor :)
You *did* have structured cable pulled to every room and terminated in a network 'closet' in the basement (or in your office), right?

Hey guys...

Yes...I have the cable pulled.  However...the connection is not the older monitor version but the newer type.
As stated in my first post, there is also a DVI version available from that company now. Check with www.adder.com - it should have become available this fall, as they announced earlier this year. Just contact them. That is the product you want - no converter needed - you will get a perfect digital image on your 22" screen.
